Hear, hear.  I've asked for this for YEARS.

Perhaps with an optional fourth argument, representing "i know the verb
i'm asking about isn't +x, but CALL IT ANYWAY".  Of course, this would
quite possibly break an awful lot of "caller == this" checks but presumably
a wizard overriding call_verb() would take that into consideration.
