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)
                                     (m standard-method)
                                     &rest args)
       (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.
     Gregor said:
     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
opinion about the method argument. I'd like to see David's objection
to it.
