Actually, $.elem is just short for $(self.elem); if you want direct
access to the variable you'd write $!elem. Also, an "indirect method
call" would be self."$elem", self.$elem is basically equivalent to
$elem(self), which is why you get the "cannot find method
postcircumfix:<( )> error, as whatever's in $elem is probably not
callable like that
