Named factory functions

# Sultan (2 months ago)

Where there any attempts to allow factory functions the ability to assume the name of the binding they are assigned to?

Consider the following:

function factory () { return function () {} } var foo = factory() console.assert( === 'foo')

I suspect that would break a ton of code - ES6 name inference already broke some of mine, but I was able to work around it by using this kind of indirection.
