Reason for choosing Spidermonkey over V8

Mårten Gustafson
Out of sheer curiosity, were there any specific reason for choosing  
Spidermonkey rather than V8 for Riak?

V8's embedding API, or lack of one, prevented us from being able to write a linked-in driver which worked well and didn't jeopardize the stability of the Erlang VM. Spidermonkey provides a nicer embedding API which is more suited to embedding it inside larger applications.
