I didn’t overload the actual name because properties aren’t really functions and as such don’t use tcallcandiates etc… If you attempt to use the name of the default property the last property declared wins. Is that ok? I hope so because I imagine it’s lots of work to actually make property names behave like real functions and not worth it imo.

Thought about this more and it doesn’t make sense. Actually I think the name should overload also so all these should work:

a[1, ‘aaa'];

a.values[1, ‘aaa'];

I’ll fix that once I’m sure what I’ve done so far is correct.
