Natives' Syntax-Issues & Implementation Laziness. #1774

Nearly all of the native-libraries (like fs.js, http2.js, et al.) have syntax issues like redeclaration of variables, non/null-returning functions.

This is not a huge problem - nevertheless, those syntax-issues break node at the actual state when called with --harmony_typeof --harmony_weakmaps --harmony_block_scoping.

Example, node with given arguments at the actual state:

var callback = (typeof(callback_) == 'function' ? callback_ : null);

throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
SyntaxError: Variable 'callback' has already been declared

We accepts patches for minor bugs like that (for major bugs too, of course), preferably multiple small ones - say one per module - instead of a single big patch. They should be written against the current master and should not break any tests that aren't already broken.
