Interpreter: how generate C for new method

Well if you don't have any clear usage of it in the interpreter, then  
the optimization inlining step will
consider it not-callable and remove it from the list of methods to  
generate C code for.
Fortunately there is another method (the name escapes me) where you  
can add methods that
aren't explicitly called, yet must exist.
