a test for stringify "whitelist" which WebKit fails

Hi Oliver,
I'm curious about this TC - it appears to be WebKit against the rest of  
us, but it will take me some assistance from somebody with Superior  
Spec-Reading Skills to figure out who does the right thing..


(test code is at  
http://testsuites.opera.com/JSON/correctness/scripts/046.js )

Issue: if an object has properties whose name is a number inside a string  
({'1':'foo'}) and you pass in a white-list array to stringify(), WebKit  
requires the elements in the array to be numbers inside strings too, while  
other implementations allow either plain numbers or numbers inside strings.

The latter makes more sense to me given that JS generally doesn't  
distinguish obj[1] and obj['1']. Do you think this is a WebKit bug?
