        $ prefix means global
        @ prefix for instance stuff (self.)
        @@ prefix for class stuff (cls.)
        ? suffix for methods that return boolean
        ! suffix for "dangerous" methods, such as modifying args in place
        = suffix for method names for methods that can be lvalues
    _ is allowed inside integer constants
