Yes! This right here is the worst feature as it is a source of 
headaches when it comes to compiler bugs.
We can replace this that introduce new features for the classes 
such as the much needed properties overhaul that is still WIP. 
and introduce default interface implementation.

Before you ask, No, using string mixin or templates for 
implementing interfaces  is NOT considered to be a default 
interface implementation.
