BTW, Evan, meant to ask you what you consider the correct behavior  
for property chains  on properties that have mixtures of objects and  
data values. Suppose we have:

p < q o r

and:

Class A, instances a1, a2, a3

a1 p a1
a1 r a2
a1 r 5
a2 q a3
a2 q 7

What do you expect a1.p to be inferred to be? How to handle a1 r 5,  
as 5.q doesn't make sense.
