I was under the impression that only freshly-created method objects could
be added to generic functions, and that in order to move an existing
method from one generic function to another required a step of
MAKE-INSTANCE using the method function. If that's not true, then
we ought to leave add-method in chapter 2.
There are several other simple documented ways to make methods, and I
thought of them all. It happens that all of them except MAKE-INSTANCE
install the method objects in generic functions.
