I tested: in IntegerTest>>#testEven I added a line at the end
	self assert: (1 perform: #odd)

Now senders of #odd, when selecting 'odd' and doing alt-n, includes the

But the browser's "senders" button apparently is not in sync with the much  
better capabilities of #allCallsOn: and #thoroughSenders. I must say that  
this was the first time ever that I used this particular button ;-)
