It's definitely a bug, but I think the reason it has been around so 
long is that no-one has offerred a clean solution.  

I was hoping for something along the lines of functions raising an 
ArgumentError (a new subclass of TypeError) that could be trapped by 
the __call__ slot for bound methods and then reraised with a new 
argument count.  The key is to find a *very* lightweight and minimal 
solution; otherwise, we should just live with it for another 18 years :-
