Hi Chris!

Jusst out of curiosity, what is the rationale for deprecating "methods"?

It has been deprecated for at least 6 years now, I just added the warnings last year.

I don't know the old discussions, but the comments added here make pretty clear that initialize() was meant to replace '__ac_permissions__', 'meta_types' and 'methods':

I guess 'methods' was never meant to be used for something else than factory methods.

As Florent already pointed out using it for general monkey patching doesn't look like a good idea. We only can improve the product initialization if we first remove some cruft.
