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.
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.
