Well he has acknowledged that we need some sort of probing lookups and
that we were missing some way to do this cleanly...

See my bug report about the static references in Savannah ... where 
A is a type and a class member ... We have to backtrack from the 
member access to type access when the former fails ... So we have a 
conditional case there with both the lhs and rhs ...

I'm focussing right on unavoidable bugs right now ... stuff which cannot
be disambiguated or anything like that ... This ambigous referencing is
not what I call good language design ... But will just have to do it
anyway ...
