[squeak-dev] proposal: MessageSend understands #homeMethod

Hi List,

I think it makes sense that MessageSend understands #homeMethod (used in
the debug halo 'browse action code' command).

What I'm not sure about is what sorts of things might occur as a
MessageSend.  Obviously, SimpleServiceEntry uses it for buttons, but I'm
not sure how to best handle the dispatch in Smalltalk.  Obviously, this
included patch only works for services, so it seems of limited use.  How
would the list handle this?
