Neat. Good to see articles in support of TypeInfo/ClassInfo!
I do wish we extended it for full reflection capabilities
Andrei suggested using rtlInfo but AFAICT this requires building
a custom druntime. It would be easy to support this method in
addition to 'deallocator' and 'hash' but I suspect it would not
be a very popular option.
Maybe we could have a void* in TypeInfo and a global integer
index that extensions could use to allocate entries?
