of course gb is right.
but I am a very average user that have always lived with MCL and they  
echoed the - one and only - &key argument list.
I mean, I have never gone very deep into all this and since MCL did  
echoed that I wanted i didint bother anymore.
I'd say that 95 procent of my "functions" are defmethods, some small  
utilities are defuns, and defgenereic I have never used...

I think it could even be a pedagogic view on this to make you  
reflecting over why defmethod isnt echoing the list...
but yes, perhaps even if it is "stupid" and not "well done", one like  
me could use an echoing of the &key arg list in the only method of  
that genereic function...

for the tickets, you have to correct me since I never used this kind  
of developing system before and am doing it only because Matthew  
Emserson encouraged us to do so - even if we wern't sure of if it was  
worth a ticket or not... so please correct me when I'm doing wrong.

And, every time I wait one or two weeks and take another trunk, things  
have happened!
I am very happy for all this!!

Sincerely
Joakim
