Is support for class scopes an absolute must-have ? While it might be
nice to have for consistency's sake, practically speaking module and
function scopes should cover all but the most obscure and perverse use
cases. I'm on -0.1 at the moment because of the "Two Ways To Do It"
objection but I don't think the complication of making it work for
class scopes should be grounds for rejection.
