Interesting... I remember that some years ago, I fiddled around with 
functions, operators etc. to allow a method like syntax -- but I ever 
was worried this approach would have serious weaknesses -- are there any 
principal hindrances to having methods, if no, can this be implemented 
in a straightforward way?

Thank you in advance,
