Just so you know, everybody i've known so far has hacked @list <> on <> to
@list <obj>.<meth>  Also, the syntax i've decided to stick with for '@display'
is (ie give me comments):

	@d <obj>.<meth>
	@d <obj>,<param>
	@d <obj>:<meth-ancestor>
	@d <obj>;<param-ancestor>

Basically period is for methods, comma is for params.  Wild cards can be
accepted any place past the period/comma (nothing defaults to "*").  The two
ancestors display all methods defined between the ancestor and <obj>--nothing
defaults to one parent back (still hrm'ing about this last bit).  On TCD all
but the ancestor stuff works right now.
