a2.d(5): Error: no property foo for type a1.A, did you mean a1.A.foo?


It works if public of course, but if protected or private it gives a silly
error.

on private, it should probably not suggest anything; private members are
supposed to be invisible. But the protected case should probably explicitly
call out that it is protected and thus inaccessible.
