I've recently been reading up on multimethods and multiple dispatch 
(see: http://nice.sourceforge.net/). While attractive in some 
circumstances, they make me a bit uneasy; I feel there might be 
something potentially sinister lurking beneath the surface.

So when in doubt, ask: what are the security implications of 
multimethods and symmetric or asymmetric multiple dispatch?
