Inputs to Methods

Read First: receivesDispatchFrom/dispatchesOperationTo

Methods take the same inputs as their operations, except for those
inputs that are used to dispatch the operation to a method, which are
specialized to the type dispatching the operation.  For example if the
Drive operation on Vehicles has a method particular to Trucks, then the
variable giving the vehicle is of type Truck in that method, rather than
of type Vehicle.  Tool-builders for OOIE can present this information as
they wish, for example, by listing the input variables of a method as
being the same as the operation, except for the dispatching variables.
