I already knew I could make aliases/references or 'macros' (as the
documentation calls them) to members I wish to access more easily.

I am not arguing for some addition to the language, I just asked a
question and the answer is apparently no, except for the knowledge
Dalke is withholding of course. But I can find that one my own...
I just thought this would be a little better than some irc channel.
