There is no Object.prototype.keys in ES5 ;)

/edit:
You code fails for: {hasOwnProperty:3}

Sorry, got carried away by the Array stuff; hasOwnProperty is usually a prototypical method of Object, so setting it is usually a somewhat stupid idea (like naming an form input "action" or "submit". Anyway, one could use r.hasOwnProperty.call(o,k) to take care of this.

hey @atk, would you mind taking the trailing comma out of your package.json keywords?

Not at all (same for the other gists) :)

To be ES5 compatible it would also need to throw an error when o is not an object/function.

@azproduction
Object.keys=Object.keys||function(o,r){r=[];for(r[r.length] in o);return r}

for(r[r.length] in o); - this is Beautiful! but we have to use hasOwnProperty...
