There is something really nice. You can use the ... operator when calling a
function. For example, if you're wrapping a function foo:

  _origFoo = foo;
  foo = function (a, b, ...rest) {
      // ... do something ...
      return _origFoo(a, b, ...rest);

If you're wrapping a method it's not quite as nice, but:

  _origMethod = Bar.prototype.method;
  Bar.prototype.method = function (a, b, ...rest) {
      // ... do something ...
      return _origMethod.call(this, a, b, ...rest);
