If you call TEST-METHOD (defined below) on an instance of TEST-CLASS
with a keyword other than :K1, it doesn't blow up.  This is clearly
wrong.  Although it's OK to put &ALLOW-OTHER-KEYS into the method
function itself, the generic function is required to check for valid

[I was originally writing to complain that the DEFMETHOD expansion
always contained &ALLOW-OTHER-KEYS, but that appears to be allowed
by CLtL.]

(defclass test-class ()())

(defmethod test-method ((test test-class) &key k1)
  (progn k1))

(defvar test (make-instance 'test-class))

(test-method test :random-keyword t) ;; Doesn't barf!  Clearly wrong.
