In ConstraintSystem::performMemberLookup(), constructors with “simple” names
have a dedicated lookup path. In contrast, constructors with compound names are
handled by the normal lookup. If I delete this code and let the normal lookup
path handle both simple and compound named constructors, I find that all 10,214
validation tests pass on my machine (albeit with slightly different error
messages in three test files).
Is the test suite missing a test for this code path and if so, what? Or should
it be scheduled for deletion after identical error messages can be generated by
the normal lookup path?
