coops: Hygiene issue with ensure-generic-procedure

Reported by: Moritz Heidkamp Owned by: felix winkelmann
Priority: minor Milestone: someday
Component: extensions Version: 4.8.x
Keywords: coops Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


This program:

(use extras coops)

(define-class <foo> ())
(define-class <bar> (<foo>))

(define-method (foo (x <foo>)) `(<foo>  ,x))

(define-syntax define-foo
  (syntax-rules ()
    ((_ class)
     (define-method (foo (x class))
       `(class ,x)))))

(define-foo <bar>)

(pp (foo (make <foo>)))
(pp (foo (make <bar>)))

results in this output:

Note: implicitly defining generic-procedure: foo

Note: implicitly defining generic-procedure: foo170

Error: (foo) no method defined for given argument classes: (#<coops standard-class `<foo>'>)

Note how the second implicit generic procedure definition mentions a renamed identifier. Indeed, using an equivalent but direct method definition like this instead:

(define-method (foo (x <bar>))
  `(<bar> ,x))

works fine. The attached patch fixes this but I'm not sure if it's the correct way to do it.
