Is "inherit" what you're looking for?  That will inherit from anywhere
arbitrarily high up the class hierarchy, and bind a local name so you
can call it directly.  The names do have to be declared somewhere,
though; because superclasses are not always known statically, the
class system does not automatically know what set of names is
