   It is not true that most functions are pseudo-constructors,
   in interfacing to window-systems I have reason to make lots of functions.
   Pseudo-constructors that are translated will be known to be pseudo-constructors
   by the browser, so the translator can tag the c++ with whatever we want.

Sounds reasonable.

   Why do they use nonstandard names, and shouldn't we fix them?

To disambiguate functions that have the same arguments but different
results (e.g. after(3) is [3, +inf) and before(3) is (-inf, 3)) and to
make them more readable.
