This is laughable btw; the reason it was an absurd request
in the first place is precisely because srfi-44 leaves this
very thing (how to add methods to its overloaded functions)
unspecified.  There is no such thing as a portable interface
to SRFI-44, so you were quite right to ignore the request for

I think I agree with you; it's sensible to me to talk
about a hash table of size 2048, containing 999 elements.
