+In fact, this was lack of some functionality, rather than a bug. After
+reading the standard a pair of times I understood how extern alias
+should be resolved (different from simple alias), and now we are -with
+this patch- resolving the extern alias as accessible within the
+immediate containing namespace or compilation unit (refer to 16.4.1
+section in the latest standard).
+This patch should do it. Note that it's not as clean as I had wanted,
+but it's small, simple, and it works.
