As always, if something, should be in Base or Julia, then I think a PR is
[Maybe I do not fully understand this (yes, type piracy I guess equals,
accessing internal variable, that would be Private (to not violate Parnas'
Principles) in other languages).
I like how Julia avoids Hoare's self-admitted billion dollar mistake. It
seems to violate Parnas' but since no type can subtype a concrete type, it
may not, or at least that violation can always be avoided(?).]
