I'm gonna poke this bug and add myself to it.

I've been bugging the V8 crowd to add this to their engine:


so I'll bug you all to add it to Nitro :-). They have a small patch ready and
I've tested it successfully, so maybe we can get some friendly competition here

A bit of background: as I stated on the V8 bug report, I'm the guy that
originally pestered Brendan Eich back in 2003 to add this capability to


Since he's done that, it's also been included in the Java-based Rhino engine.
I've also proposed this extension to the ECMA committee.

I'll attach 2 files to this bug report. One is the proposal that my business
partner and I made to the ECMA committee to add 'noSuchMethod' to ECMAScript.
The other is a pretty comprehensive set of tests, both one from Brendan and a
more complex one from my business partner Scott.

There is a pretty compelling case for adding this to your interpreter and that
is spelled out in the ECMA proposal document.

Thanks for your consideration!
