you can use print.htest directly for the components which _are_ elements
of objects of class `htest' and provide your one print method for all
others. If your class `foo' (essentially) extends `htest', a
simple version of `print.foo' could by

print.foo <- function(x, ...) {

   # generate an object of class `htest'
   y <- x
   class(y) <- "htest"
   # maybe modify some thinks like y$method
   # print y using `print.htest' without copying code

   # and now print additional information
