Private methods and accessors

Keeping state and behavior private to a class lets library authors present a clear, stable interface, while changing their code over time behind the scenes. The class fields proposal provides private fields for classes and instances, and this proposal builds on that by adding private methods and accessors (getter/setters) to JavaScript. With this proposal, any class element can be private.
