From Fabrice Bellard, with minor name change (umulh):

// return the high 32 bit part of the 64 bit addition of (hi0, lo0) and (hi1, lo1)
Math.iaddh(lo0, hi0, lo1, hi1)

// return the high 32 bit part of the 64 bit subtraction of (hi0, lo0) and (hi1, lo1)
Math.isubh(lo0, hi0, lo1, hi1)

// return the high 32 bit part of the signed 64 bit product of the 32 bit numbers a and b

// A response to jashkenas's fine proposal for minimalist JavaScript classes.
// Harmony always stipulated classes as sugar, so indeed we are keeping current
// JavaScript prototype semantics, and classes would only add a syntactic form
// that can desugar to ES5. This is mostly the same assumption that Jeremy
// chose, but I've stipulated ES5 and used a few accepted ES.next extensions.
// Where I part company is on reusing the object literal. It is not the syntax
// most classy programmers expect, coming from other languages. It has annoying
// and alien overhead, namely colons and commas. For JS community members who
