What do you mean? "use strict" is not going away. It is used by some 
developers. I had a show of hands at JSConf.au, definitely a minority 
but significant.

You are barking up the wrong tree. And Angus's abuses of 'with' are 
unjustified. Yes, "be water". Yes, masters may break rules students must 
follow. None of that philosophizing justifies 'with' abusage or 
repealing/undoing "use strict".
