and another vote here :)

most wanted AS3 class I would want to see native in ES4 are:

and btw Tamarin already have these (in the shell, not the core language)


and Dictionnary

Concerning flash.utils.Proxy
its features should be combined imho with the intrinsic namespace
and the catchalls

so concerning the hash and overriding of hash
I would like to be able to do something like that in ES4

  class Foobar {
    . . .
    public function hash():uint {
      var seed:uint ^= propA.hash();
           seed       ^= propB.hash();
      return intrinsic::hash( seed );

with that logic
function intrinsic::hash( seedvalue ):uint, the non-overridable
universal hash method call.
function hash( seedvalue ):uint, the hash method call

hope that make sens ?
