[Openmcl-devel] Calling Obj-C methods defined in OpenMCL via the bridge?

Methods defined via DEFINE-OBJC-METHOD should be callable (via SEND)
from lisp code.

This is not unlike:

(defcallback add-ints (:int x :int y :int)
   (+ x y))

(ff-call add-ints :int 2 :int 2 :int)

which (a) an awkward way to add a couple of integers together and
(b) unlike the DEFINE-OBJC-METHOD case in the the latter case
involves some dispatching on the type of the receiver.

(I have a feeling that I'm missing something obvious in that response,
but can't guess what it might be.)
