no-next-method lexical function
This is a good idea. We should add a generic function called
NEXT-METHOD-MISSING which receives the generic-function, method and the
arguments as its arguments.
(defmethod next-method-missing ((gf standard-generic-function)
(error "No next method"))
NO-NEXT-METHOD is a more consistent name. I don't understand what method
you propose it would receive as an argument; I think it should receive the
same arguments as NO-APPLICABLE-METHOD.
I agree that no-next-method is a better name. The method I propose it
receive as an argument is the currently executing method. This gives
specializations of no-next-method which want to try to determine which
method to invoke more information to work with.
What do others think? (Heard this line before anywhere?)
I think the concept of NO-NEXT-METHOD is fine. I don't have any
opinions about the method argument. I'd like to see David's objection
