That doesn't exactly match my count, but close enough. For ES4 I
removed all duplicate intrinsic:: names (not sure what these are for
but I'll trust that they are not interestingly different), one of the
two String classes, and meta::invoke. For ES3 I did not count [[Call]]
internal properties or the like. I get:
Seems to be about the same ~2x increase that you report, though we
used different methodologies to count. I would not count this as
excessive growth, when it comes to the standard library.
