Subclassing Function

@Jordan The linked proposal is what inspired the dual-method part (which I backed away from) of my suggestion.

How we define the call/construct methods of a _class_ is actually orthogonal to how we define the call method of an _instance_ of the hypothetical function subclass. If anything, they have to be keyed separately. Example:

class SubFunction extends Function {
  constructor() {
    // "static" constructor function, sets up instance state

  call constructor () {
    // hypothetical "static function" version of class

  [Symbol.functionCall]() {
    // body of class instance function
