Everything's green now, Eric. The problem was not pervasive after
all; just a couple of fixes solved everything.

There's no need to revert. It makes me wonder though if we've missed
something that will blow up in the future. I'll probably have to
scrutinize classes that use proto::extends and check for overloads.

You might want to warn other proto users of this potential
breaking change.
