I sort of agree, and somewhat regret not picking 'openmethod'. I considered both. Also @specialize. If anyone had pushed for @openmethod before the article, I would almost certainly have given in.

My reasoning was, I hope to promote the term 'method' as the standard name for polymorphism from outside, as opposed to vfunc. We usually say "virtual functions", rarely "virtual member functions". Membership is implicit.


Rename, alias to old and have it deprecated.
Keep around for a couple of releases, done!

Deprecated, already? :-D Hmmm maybe...Let's see if anyone speaks in favor of just @method.
