Where the primitive is send directly, and not a message to the receiver.

Is something like this available or I would need to create a new primitive?

Which by the way, is the primitive that should exist, and Object>>withArgs:executeMethod: should be nuked ASAP. There is no reason to pollute the Object namespace any more than absolutely necessary.

The solution already exists in Cog: primitive 188 can accept a third argument - the receiver, but it doesn't work if the CompiledMethod is quick. In this case the VM crashes. It does work with "normal" methods.

I prepared an image with a workspace in it demonstrating the bug:

If primitive 188 works reliably, then this feature can be added to the interpreter VM too.

Levente, this is fixed in VMMaker.oscog-eem.75 & http://www.mirandabanda.org/files/Cog/VM/VM.r2394/.  David, the VMMaker package contains a putative fix for Interpreter.  Feel free to integrate it into the interpreter.
