Update of bug #49169 (project octave):

                  Status:               Need Info => Confirmed              


Follow-up Comment #13:

Ok, so it's clear that we should allow class() to be called via builtin() from
a class ctor function.

I don't know enough about how to traverse the Octave call stack to implement
this. It is easy enough to call called_from_builtin() to detect that class()
was called by builtin, but I don't easily see how to get a reference to one
higher in the call stack to make sure we are in a class ctor of the same name
as the 2nd argument.

If someone can supply a patch to do this, I'll be happy to test and apply.
