I've been following this thread with great interest and I have to say that I
think the hard error option sounds the best out of all of them. I have caught
somany errors due to typing Objective C (despite the fact that I was taught
it as "use id everywhere and let the runtime sort it out") that anything which
enforces this seems like a good idea to me. Failing that the IMP fallback
sounds like the next best option - especially if it is less likely to
produce correct coe than the existsing approach, as this will also encourage
people to fix their code.
