also note, that nothing prohibit from using '#' in both meanings in
future. (because starting sequence for row method name is #", not #);
static-binding to methods with #" names will start with two # symbols in
such case.

Method m1 = #myMethod;
Method m2 = ##"operator:+=";

//Of course, level of ugliness is question of personal taste.
