They're all named T5<X>::T5 for some X.  We get fully qualified type
names in the debug info.  The function should be contained in or
specified by the containing type.

Admittedly, for some template cases this gets really out of hand.
It's *hard* to represent Template<Type::Bar, 5, &(static_var)> as the
name of a type in DWARF.  But this can all be done using DW_AT_name;
it only gets really tricky if the compiler uses the DWARF extensions
for type and value parameters.
