John -

Well, obviously I have use cases or otherwise I wouldn't have put the time and effort into continuing to ask for this functionality.

As I've said before, as long as I can hook proxies into the prototype chain such that I can use proxy functionality with objects where I don't have control over their creation, I would happily get rid of a non-standard solution like __noSuchMethod__. The threads you mention have snippets of code that I use in real world applications all-day, every-day. Unfortunately, I can only use an elegant solution with Firefox right now, since its the only one that has __noSuchMethod__. For other platforms, I must use much hackier solutions.

Cheers,

- Bill
