It seems like there are no uses; less is more.

To quote Arnie, "Hasta la vista, baby".

This was misbegotten from day one. True story: the very first JS impl ("Mocha") would bind global functions (the only kind in Netscape 2) and vars at compile time. Moving all name binding to runtime via the prolog left some old embeddings wanting the compile-binds behavior, so I threw them this bone. I should have thrown a rock.
