I see your point about not abusing method entries for holding comments. 
I also understand Dave's comments about Object class not being the right 
place for such comments. The logical place is not primitiveFailed: but 
CompiledMethod>>primitive. After all, primitives are associated only 
with compiled method objects not all objects.

For now, The help text methods could be left in place but modified to 
point to the new location. When all references to these methods are 
removed, the methods themselves may be removed.
