But but but...
Suppose you have two classes <boat> and <plane> with their method (move).
And you want to do a class <hydroplane> and you wonder how to write the
method move for that class.
It you be nice to do something like
(defclass <hydroplane> (<boat> <plane>) ...)
(defmethod move ((self <hydroplane>) ...)
(if condition (call-specified-method 'move '<boat>)
(call-specified-method 'move '<plane>)
Anyway it seems to me that it would be nice, no ?
