[R] as.generic

I've been writing some matrix-type methods for a new class of sparse matrices
and for most methods this has been straightforward.  However, there are
examples, like %*% and chol, that (apparently) R doesn't automatically
recognize as generic.  What to do in these cases?  At this point, I've
been writing new generic methods with slightly perturbed names %m% and
cholesky for example in the expectation that I'll eventually rename them
when I discover the source of my confusion.  Can someone enlighten me?
