But, isn't this kindda odd? I mean, knowing what eval() do and what
toSource() do, one assumes that they can (should?) be interoperable.

I belive that the code such as "eval(eval.toSource())" emitting an
error breaks a presumable consistency. I know that being unable to
actually have a native source evaluated already breaks this
consistency, but injecting an invalid syntax string in it's source
seems too much to me.
