I think that strcmp comparisons should be an exception to the rule, but I can
change this when landing if a reviewer tells me to.

We should probably discuss this on webkit-dev first, as the current rules don't allow for such exception.

It has been two week with no discussion on webkit-dev to approve this, so I'm resolving as this bug as invalid.

Feel free to reactivate if that discussion happens and this is approved.

fwiw, I like comparing to 0/NULL for all appropriate items, but it is WebKit style to not to do this and !a is logically equivalent to a == 0 so that's that :)

I e-mailed webkit-dev now.
