Yes, it does seem like the distinction is one that a programmer SLIME  
implementor would want to know about but not like something a SLIME  
user should care about (except, perhaps, to know that the reflexive  
technique used was less or more powerful...). From the API  
perspective, I think a single method would make more sense...

(my apologies for a rushed and less than useful answer, BTW).
