Apologies -- I didn't fully understand this question until I re-read

I agree that we need to apply this patch and will raise some hell
forthwith.  In the meantime, the issue is specific to Hash, so can't
you do...

Object.extend(Hash.prototype, {
reject: function() { /* ... */ },
findAll: function() { /* ... */ },
_add: function() { /* ... */ },
_new: function() { /* ... */ }

I think this is the best band-aid until this problem gets permanently
