FWIW, I would be happy to see 'method' added without signatures.  Or,
put differently, I'd hate to see 'method' not happen because we're
waiting for an officially sanctioned implementation of signatures.

Since I'd want signatures for regular (non-method) subroutines, too,
I'd prefer to see the two concepts separated so I can have my cake and
eat it while waiting for the next cake to arrive.
