I'm not sure what to call it, but I think this would be much nicer than
__proto__ and consistent with the new way of doing things. Here are some

   - @proto
   - @extends
   - @parent
   - @prototype
   - @prototypeOf

@prototypeOf seems a little silly as a property name, but it would work
well with getPrototypeOf()
