Not that I know of, but why is 'var' at issue? An arrow function is 
still a function, and function body scopes (hoisted) var bindings. If 
arrows bind 'return' why not 'var' too? Better to avoid diverging from 
non-arrow functions than try to minimize TCP exceptions when there are 
any exceptions at all, I say.
