    Can call-next-method be used in init forms of optional/keyword arguments?
    How about &aux inits?

The documentation everywhere says "in the body of a method", which
presumably excludes forms contained in the lambda-list, since "body of
the method" is explicitly defined in the documentation of DEFMETHOD.
Personally I think that was a poor design decision.

Current practice:  PCL appears to allow call-next-method in forms in the
lambda-list.  Flavors doesn't allow continue-whopper in forms in the
lambda-list, although there is no reason why it couldn't.
