Heh, true. There were things like the Prototype library that extended the prototypes to fill the gap somewhat, but that just made it harder for language designers to implement the built-in objects without breaking the web in the process.

To be honest, the prototype methods are mainly just syntactic sugar, and I'm currently working on a followup series of articles and a secret project to explain the application of this in a much broader context. :)
