name property for built-in functions??

Personally, I always name my function expressions, (and don't use new  
Function) so I am not presented with this dilemma. And that works  
great for me except for the one runtime in the universe that makes a  
hash of named function experssions...

For introspection purposes, I create an object identity table and  
assign unique identifiers to objects, so I'd find either undefined or  
"" acceptable for unnamed functions.
