There's a simple example of multimethods in the Python Cookbook
(online). PEAK now includes a generic function implementation, a bit
more at http://dirtsimple.org/2004/11/generic-functions-have-landed.html
Adaptation and interfaces are related idea. I feel like they are a
little vague at this point, as far as best-practices go.
