This was the method that was only useful if you pass `0` to it?

Allen mentioned that `String#at` might not make it to ES6 because nobody in TC39 is championing it. I've now asked Rick if he would be the champion for this, and he agreed. (Thanks again!)

Looking over the 'TC39 progress' document at <https://docs.google.com/a/chromium.org/document/d/1QbEE0BsO4lvl7NFTn5WXWeiEIBfaVUF7Dk0hpPpPDzU>, it seems most of the work is already taken care of: the use case was discussed in this thread, the proposal has a complete spec text, and there's an example implementation/polyfill with unit tests. See <http://mths.be/at>.

Is there anything else I can do to help get this included as a non-TC39-member?
