If you check out the spec, Promise.any() runs down its list of
arguments in order, giving them the ability to resolve the returned
promise.  So if several of them are already resolved, the first one in
argument order is what gets used - the rest of them *try* to fulfill
the promise, but it's already been resolved, so it doesn't do
