Hi Miguel,

	Sure :-) my complaint is ultimately one about the language, such that
while there is a way of dealing with method pointers generically, it's
not made syntactically easy - probably (as Ben says) due to the (not
insurmountable) problems of method overloading.

	Anyway, it seems unfixable to me; there's no way we can do things like:

	gobject.connect ("foo", obj.method);

	We're going to have to do new FooBarBaz (obj.method) instead.
