Deprecated predecessor of `console.log`.

## util._extend(obj)
Stability: 0 - Deprecated: Use Object.assign() instead.
`_extend` was never intended to be used outside of internal NodeJS modules. The
community found and used it anyway.
It is deprecated and should not be used in new code. JavaScript comes with very
similar built-in functionality through `Object.assign`.
