Developer Annoyance #1

Yeah, thought about that too, but I'm tired of accommodating 
transcript's ideosyncracies. A language should accommodate the developer 
at every turn. The problem I see with the solution below, is that if any 
layer in the message path has an identically named function, the one I 
want invoked will be intercepted early, and screen the one I actually 
want. It also kinda obviates the entire strategy of invoking a method in 
another object. :)

You probably already considered these side-effects, but I spelled them 
out for anybody else following along, trying to learn this language.
