Well, it's something like: we have this multimethod implementation
that is at least somewhat independent of PyPy, in
pypy/objspace/std/multimethod.py.  The class which was called
MultiMethod was not defined there -- it *is* dependent on PyPy and the
standard object space and so on.  So I whined about the name on #pypy
and Carl changed it.  I guess the class multimethod.MultiMethodTable
could be renamed to MultiMethod now, but I'm not really sure.
