In the Script Junkie article I cover a few examples of collisions with
Function.prototype's and problems with Array.prototype.
Date.create, Function.create and the like clutters the API. I would be
for a more generic Object.setPrototypeOf() addition.

PrototypeJS uses it.

I don't know. It would need to preserve internal [[Class]] as __proto__.
