I did the variation which supports N-ary MethodApply nodes.  It is somewhat less natural than the binary MethodApply nodes, because constant pools contain mostly binary nodes, but it matches the meaning of the constants better to allow them to be N-ary.  And the extra data structure is pretty simple.  See what you think.

(These are only the diffs from the binary to the N-ary version.)
