For me the most common use cases for cloning are for logging, or a sanity check before crossing a wire (often for API responses and/or errors).  So true clones aren't needed, same for prototype chains.  What you do want to avoid is to have circular references plucked, and/or pull up error message/stack properties out of the prototype instance.

I created an npm module (safe-clone-deep), and helped with another (fclone).  I mostly just use fclone these days.

Thanks, I'm going to check them out.
My intention in pointing out that prototype chain is not copied was to bring to the reader's attention that it is not a true, 100% clone.
