As a dev who actually uses __proto__ as a fallback for sandboxed
Arrays, I can tell you that Array.create() is **not** a quick,
I support more than Array like String, RegExp, Function, Number, and Boolean.
I would stress, as it seems you keep circling back to Array.create(),
that Array.create() is not a fitting replacement for __proto__.
Not even in the short term.
I can see Oliver's proposal totally fitting __proto__'s use case, so I
would +1 his Object.subclass() over Array.create().
It would be great if solutions like Oliver's Object.subclass() were
discussed in the next meeting.
