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
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.

Keep around for a couple of releases, done!
Deprecated, already? :-D Hmmm maybe...Let's see if anyone speaks
