Why, precisely, do you think there need be any difference between a method
function and any other kind of function? I can understand this for
a generic function, since a generic function has slots, but a method
function has none. It seems to me that most of how a method function
differs is covered by additions to its lexical environment, and that
FUNCALL and APPLY should do.
