Re: Prototype and object prototype comment 000

You do defeat further inheritance like that.. however, in theory, you should be able to do it like this (which is one of the things I'm considering for the object model):

function isBoundFunction(func) {
    return (typeof(func.im_func) == 'function');

function bind(func, self) {
    var im_func = null;
    if (isBoundFunction(func)) {
        im_func = func.im_func;
    } else {
        im_func = func;
    func = function () {
        return func.im_func.apply(func.im_self, arguments);
    func.im_func = im_func;
    func.im_self = self;

With return func; at the end, of course.

Ok, just tested it.. it works in practice. Check the new implementation in svn (which is very similar to this, but it has tests and stuff).
