Re: [expr-cumulative] RFA fix PR 9708

It would have to be some other syntax, because this is valid:

    struct K {
      int m () {
        static bool themagicstatic = false;

        return themagicstatic ? 23 : 24;

      class m {
        static bool themagicstatic;

... and K::m::themagicstatic unambiguously refers to the member of
class m.

I thought about trying to make K::m()::themagicstatic work, but that
also seems like a pain.

I agree.  I think it is a separate problem, though, because it would be
nice to also make it work for C, where there is no demangled form, etc.
Maybe if we ever get "HPD-like" in our symbol naming, or something like

Keith> In any case, I don't have a problem with your patch.

Thanks, I'll commit shortly.
