Crazy like a Fox, makes the compiler near impossible, but makes lots
of stuff "just work" :)

So a much simpler example then (using C syntax to explain since we all
know it, but could be any language):

int a;
    float a;
    second_piece_of_code_using_a ....

For C/C++ the first piece of code will see `a` as an int and the
second piece of code will see `a` as a float, but there are languages
(Julia for one) where both pieces of code will see `a` as a float.
Again you need language specific knowledge to lookup `a` in the first
piece of code.
