Prototype.js is not making Ruby in JavaScript. It just embraces the
conventions (modules, names, return types) because the two languages have
similar dynamic features. As for Enumerable, you already have that in
ECMAScript (and implemented by Mozilla), only under different names
("forEach", "filter", ...).

Unfortunately, this is where JavaScript 2 is going right now. And it's
already too late to change anything.
