If I want to have unscoped extensions and live with the consequences - I will be happy to use symbols. If I want to make a polyfill, I'll just do it the same way we've been doing it. But, as much as Allen seems to accuse me of being an FP guy, I still want to have a thing which feels like a method to be on the right so I find that using :: (if it existed) would be a nice compromise.

Hey, it was a general rant and not specifically directed at you or anybody else.
