My objection is to STANDARD-METHOD being used for two distinct purposes:
as the default class of methods for DEFMETHOD, and as the superclass of
several other classes. These purposes are distinct and should be served
by separate classes.
Yes, this is a problem. I favor the first solution. Trying to get the
second solution to work would involve coming up with a name for the new
interposed class. That leads very quickly, at least in my mind, to a
reexamination of all the names we are using so far.
