Yes I do, but i imagine it's not possible. Correct? Sorry for the
ambiguity. I'm asking about this because I'd like to see how clang
determined what I'm doing is wrong by looking at a backtrace (or
something). Not just in this case, but for something a little more
complicated in general as well which won't get put into the AST.

Sure, in this case there's a bug/feature request which I'd like work on by
looking at data members when they're being assigned to in a BinaryOp, and
if the syntax is not this->... = ..., emit a warning.
That's the source of my question. But, something else off the top off my
head would be to see the valid use of a dependent type being looked up and
Does that help?
