    discriminated on a function object rather than generic function:

    If call-next-method failed to find a next method, the error message would
    print showing that the function called was call-next-method and the

I don't believe this is appropriate, because call-next-method itself

call-next-method is not a generic-function that is failing to find an
applicable method.
