Description

Description

The function

(fn console [] js/console)

will return a reference to itself when called.
This happens because the function is transpiled to

(function console(){return console;})

Solution proposals

Mangle internal function names like let bindings

The internal name of a generated js function should be treated like a let binding, hence gensymed.
Thus the function would be transpiled to something like

(function console_1337(){return console;})
