Yes, I agree with that change.  But in this case we found a hidden name 
and we aren't in a local class, so the comment "A non namespace-scope 
binding can only be hidden if we are in a local class" is not quite 
right.  Rather, it can only be hidden in the presence of a local class, 
but it can be found by lookups outside the local class, as in the testcase.
