rest parameters

And defaults can have rest parameters afterwards. But yeah, I know it's
convenient in a few cases, but I find myself in this situation rarely, so
I'm not sure if it merits being in the spec. Also, the ES6 version isn't
that much longer, and if a single `.pop()` becomes a bottleneck, there's
probably larger issues in the algorithm itself.
