In reflective programming needs, one may need to retrieve the original method name that was used, when the method object was created in the first place.

This would allow for retrieving the original mixed case spelling of method names.

For that purpose a "name" attribute should be added to the Method class.

    There's no real connection between the name that a method might be originally created with vs. the registered method name used to invoke the method. The same original method can be added under different names or even get added to different objects. In fact, the Rexx primitive classes are this way. For example, the UNION method of array, list, and queue comes from a single method implementation originally name "ordered_appendall". Attempting to use this name for the purposes of reflection or documentation would not be useful. The only name that really exists for a method is the name it gets invoked under on the object.
