I definitely prefer the "design that would require proxies" - it feels
more natural to me.  Glenn outlined a reasonable way to still mix in
the "getAll()" idiom.

If we do stick with the method-based map, I strongly feel we should
match the JS Map API, and have a has() method as well.  *Ideally*,
this would be a subclass of Map.
