There are some special typeof() implementations, typeof(this), typeof(super),
etc, which may be used within the scope of a class to query these important

I'm frequently finding myself needing something like typeof(function), which
would be valid within the scope of any function/method and produce its type.
I'm frequently finding myself needing to use mixins within a function which
need to know information about the functions arguments so that it can generate
code that references them.

For instance, very useful when creating pass-through/proxy functions, but I
have some other uses too.
