I'm not sure if there are any in this particular instance, but it's something
to be careful of whenever you try to resolve a symbol to a different scope
depending on how it's being used.

It may be the case that the worst that can happen here is that the class-level
function conflicts with an opCall on the module-level class.  While no call of
the form Bar(...) is happening here, I can see it getting confusing if one does
