Argument unpacking?

No plans.  Function.prototype.apply is still there, albeit not as  
powerful or convenient.

I'm still hoping for something in ES4 that makes apply universal (it  
doesn't work on alert in IE; this should not be allowed by the spec  
by leaving it up to "host objects" to be broken if they ought to  
delegate to Function.prototype).  It would also be helpful for  
bootstrapping if new and apply could be composed; this came up when I  
wrote Narcissus.  Suggestions?
