Howdy, I'm investigating switching the online Apple Store from dojo  
to prototype (we're going to have to make big changes anyway if we're  
to track dojo's development from 0.4 to 0.9), however we've been  
making extensive use of the JavaScript 1.6 methods on Array (indexOf,  
map, forEach).

I noticed in my initial testing that prototype (v1.5.1.1) stomps on  
the browser native versions of these methods. This doesn't seem like  
an ideal situation, as browsers are implementing these methods in  
compiled code. So the native version seems like it would be  
considerably faster.

There's an open ticket for changes to make prototype compatible with  
JavaScript 1.6 (, any word on  
when this will be appearing in a release?
