One followup. Alex mentioned that PyPy used to have its own
implementation of multiple dispatch (which is really the same as
generic functions) but ditched over a year ago. Would Armin or Samuele
care to explain why? Do they no longer like multiple dispatch or was
the reason for the extraction specific to PyPy?
