It's even worse: the connection is from b to b and not from b to a as 
expected. Luckily, this doesn't even compile if A and B are unrelated 

I wonder why we have those static connect(sender, ..., sender, ...) 
"convenience" overloads at all. This is utterly confusing as the 
non-static variant connects from sender to this.
