Let's see how it goes. Note that this change relies on the fact that superclass static members are accessible via
subtypes e.g. Sub.superMethod();
This idiom is generally considered *bad* and there are places in the language (e.g. method references) where this is
actually met with a compile-time error (e.g. `Sub::superMethod` is not a valid method reference).
