Oh!  Now I understand.  I thought this was for procedures created by the
field access code such as:

   Struct ^ field = Value.

Which don't get compiled as procedures anyway.  But instead for the
human-written functions and procedures like hlds_info_get_detism

I don't know what you mean.  But my comment here isn't relevant anymore.

This was due to my misunderstanding.

I understand how is_getter_or_setter_2 works now and why it is written
this way (without splitting the string on the '_' delimiter).
