(ARGS 'FLATSIZE->CHARACTER-CLASS) => (5 . 5)
Why not just (NIL . 5)?
Because the SEND interpreter like to assume LSUBR format -- it
does make for faster dispatching. DEFMETHOD* creates method
functions and puts in the *LEXPR declaration.
Correction: The SEND interpreter *MUST* assume LSUBR format, or
assume it is not compiled, because LSUBR and SUBR pointers cannot
be distinguished! The declaration is **LEXPR, not *LEXPR.
