Since method-combination-instance (method-combination-object) must be
called before ensure-generic-function is called, its first argument is
actually a prototype of the generic function.
On 13 January, Danny said
[method-combination-instance] allows specialization on the class of
the generic function as well as on the name. Although useful, this
might not be important because compute-effective-method also allows
specialization on both the generic function and method combination
Given this, and what you just pointed out, I think it was a mistake to make
the generic function an argument here. Thus I think the arguments should
be (method-combination-object name options) => object. This doesn't
affect chapter 1 or 2.
I think this is right.
