I'll admit ignorance again. What does single or multiple dispatch apply
to? I can guess at what you are meaning by static versus dymamic
binding, but I suspect my interpretation won't be what you intend. So,
could you provide brief explanations of what you mean by all this
jargon? (Well, to me the first and last are clear enough.)

Don't design inefficiency in - it'll happen in the implementation. - me
