Well that's pretty funny actually. I think I'll bring the topic up
again next April 1 ;)

FWIW, the #asBit method is miscategorized in "printing", and there
are no senders in the trunk image except for a unit test.

So I brought up a SelectorBrowser and entered "true . 1", with the
result "no single method does that function". Is this a bug?
