Hi Tim.

A cache because package-name lookup for methods is expensive:

m := Morph >> #drawOn:.
[PackageOrganizer default packageOfMethod: m methodReference ifNone: []] bench.
--- '3,580 per second. 279 microseconds per run. 0.41983 % GC time.'

Almost as expensive as that not optimized #translatedInAllDomains ^__^

['Hello World' translatedInAllDomains] bench.
--- '9,250 per second. 108 microseconds per run. 3.19872 % GC time.'

Wow. That's some expensive code.
Dare I ask why it tries to set a property on a method?

Is this a place where A Dreaded Preference might actually be sensible?
