Enumerability

True. I was thinking shallow clone:

```js
var copy = Object.assign({ __proto__: obj.__proto__ }, obj);
```

But `Object.mixin()` (or `Object.define()`, I thought the case for re-renaming it was convincing) is probably a better match here.

Will `keys()`, `values()` and `entries()` from module "@dict" ignore non-enumerable properties, too?
