Invocant name in S12
Message ID:
I was just reading through S12, and it doesn't seem to ever actually
state that the default invocant name is "self".  (Is it self?  Or is
it $?SELF, which doesn't appear at all?)  S12 mentions declaring an
explicit invocant with : in the method signature, and that it's
optional; and then later on in the context of attributes it uses
"self" as if it's already been talked about, but I can't find an
introduction of the term anywhere...
