No, wait, that can't be right. Since it is just the object that is
returned when looking up a class constructor, it seems like it could be
a value object instead of a function, unless there are reasons for it to
behave more like a function.
In any case, things might be clearer if the fcn_info object used a name
like classdef_meta_info instead of class_constructors, since I think
that map doesn't actually contain the constructor functions themselves.
