What would you do with the output of entries though?

It's quite useful to convert objects to other formats, like query strings or SQL queries:

const query {
  page: 3,
  type: 'unicorn',
}

const toQueryString = query =>
  '?' + Object.entries(query)
    .map(([ key, value ]) => [ key, value ].join('=')) // Or .map(x => x.join('='))
    .join('&')

toQueryString(query) // '?page=3&type=unicorn'

Yep, that's nice. Object.keys(obj) always bothered me as then you needed to grab the value from the obj with the index of the key, but this way you have it there when you map etc.
