Didn't know you could do that, but it's not what I wanted. It implements
the method for all objects. Where was what I wanted was to implement all
methods on one object (or class).

Not that it matters now, as I have realised I was doing the wrong thing
anyway, that inheritance will do what I need.

I'm going to fix all that when I port everything to emacs-25. I'm just
waiting till that hits the shelf.
