     1385subexpression matching, and order by "most constrained symbol"; symbols would 
     1386be more constrained if there were fewer matching declarations, fewer
     1387subexpressions yet to resolve, or possibly fewer possible types the expression
     1388could resolve to. Ordering the expressions in a priority-queue by this metric
     1389would not necessarily produce a top-down or a bottom-up order, but would add
