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.
