  Actually, I've now tried call-next-method, and ccl::define-objc-method
as follows:

(objc:defmethod (#/drawWithFrame:inView: :void)
    ((self outline-cell) frame view)
  (call-next-method frame view))

(ccl::define-objc-method ((:void :draw-with-frame (:id frame)
                           :in-view (:id view)) outline-cell)
  (ccl::send-super :draw-with-frame frame :in-view view))

Both compile and execute without any complaint, but nothing is drawn,
which suggests to me that the actual super-method isn't executed... ?

Resistance is futile. You will be jazzimilated.
