The `super` keyword doesn't work as it should?

That's just as error-prone, method borrowing would only work when the 
two objects had the same superclass.
Also, what about methods that are not "found" anywhere when called, for 
example when used with `call`/`apply`/`bind`? Or static class methods 
that don't use `this` at all and are called like a plain function?

Are you suggesting that every property access that yields a function 
implicitly creates a closure over the "home"/"found" object? That's a 
no-no for obvious reasons.

Kind regards,
