I think it's because the (already hated by many, including myself)
ability to invoke a function (or a constructor) without parenthesis.
should be the same, right?
But in the first case MyClass could be a package name and you are
constructing a new "MyClass.run" instance. You could make them behave
differently, but some would say it's not consistent, etc.
