Yeah, I can understand how it makes implementors' lives easier... I just like it when they deal with annoying stuff so that I don't have to :)

I know people don't use mutable __proto__ for anything useful, but it does enable some neat tricks. Personally I wish implementors would embrace it and optimize for it rather than trying to make it go away.

As for the "prototype for" operator... that's disgusting.
