When debugging our CLOS-based window system, I redefine methods now an then.
However, if I try to redefine a method that's already loaded, the system
complains saying "Error: HIGHLIGHT-CHOSEN-ITEM already names an ordinary
function or a macro, it can't be converted to a generic function.
Error signalled by LOAD-DEFMETHOD.
Broken at REAL-ADD-NAMED-METHOD."
Is there any way around this? My file is 40 pages long and it takes a lot of
time to get out of lisp and reload it each time that I make a change to one
of the methods.
