As a band-aid short-term type of solution, the exposed function could be 
a proxy to the actual function with a specific construct trap. I've just 
tried the following on Firefox Aurora and it does what you'd expect:

     function f(){
         console.log('f call')

     var pf = new Proxy(f, {
         construct: function(target){
             console.log('pf construct');

     new pf();
