It seems as if this approach to private class members also allows us to
describe private methods in a convenient way.  Private methods can be
attached to the _prototype_ of the private field object, thus avoiding
per-instance allocation.  Of course, the correct "this" value has to be
used in the expansion when calling the private method, but this approach
appears to be compatible with mixins (whereas private symbols are not).
