Error loading module when Array prototype is modified #58

The following code produces an error when loading css-tree:

"use strict";
Array.prototype.anything = function() { };

The error produced:

                throw new Error('Wrong value in `' + name + '` structure definition');

Error: Wrong value in `CDC` structure definition

Some modules out there may add additional functions to the Array prototype and this then prevents the css-tree module from being loaded.

Can be fixed by adding this line to css-tree/lib/lexer/structure.js on line 102:

if(!structure.hasOwnProperty(key)) { continue; }

Not sure exactly what the structure.js code is doing here, so not sure if the proposed fix is safe for your code, but my hunch says it is.
