Nope, this won't do it. if I have two verbs on the same object named 'get', one with args 'this-none-none' and the other with 'any-from-this', verbs(#obj) will return two occurrances of 'get' with no way to reference the second one. I could set $server_options.support_numeric_verbname_strings to 1 and use #obj:(tostr(index - 1))(), but again, if the idea is to move away from text-based unambiguous reference then the server is going to have to be made to support #obj:(NUM)().
