It is nice to see that others are aware of David Mertz's multimethods.py.
I have the impression that not enough people know about it.  There is a decorator technique that you can use with it which gives it practically transparent syntax, which I also think is not very well known.

Just curious:  Can you say in what way multimethods.py is inadequate for your purposes?
