comment Where did the notion of “one return only” come from?
@John, you seem to be trying to answer the question without actually answering it. It's a fine reading list, but you've neither quoted nor paraphrased anything to justify your claim that this essay and book have anything to say about the asker's concern. Indeed, outside of comments you've said nothing substantial about the question whatsoever. Consider expanding this answer.

comment Avoiding new operator in JavaScript — the better way
So wait - are you looking for a better way to accomplish this, or are you just looking for someone to give you code so you can have variable-argument object creation without new? Because if it's the latter, you're probably asking on the wrong site. If it's the former, you might want to not dismiss suggestions regarding using new and detecting errors so quickly... If your app is truly "heavy", the last thing you want is some overwrought construction mechanism to slow it down. new, for all the flack it gets, is pretty speedy.
