      Description

      Currently V8 is built right into the QtDeclarative library. It should instead be built as a shared library so that it can be used in other places of Qt (including QtCore, if appropriate). Turning it into a Qt library also makes it easy to arrange for the V8 headers to be installed, so that e.g. applications that use QtDeclarative private headers – which need v8.h – will build.

      To make V8 available, a library/application would add

      QT += v8-private

      to its .pro file. To use the V8 API, add

      #include <private/v8.h>

      to C++/header files.

      The API would be private in Qt because we're exposing the V8 API directly, and we cannot make source/binary compatibility guarantees on behalf of a third-party library.
