OK, I see the problem here is only because the first parameter is of the same type as the class, so this is probably the only problematic constructor in our API and it's not very likely we would accidentally add another in the future.

Unfortunately it's a significant introspection API break, and I've no doubt changing it will break some real applications. But the status quo is obviously broken, so I guess anyone who has used this constructor so far and not reported the breakage will just have to deal with it.
