David, I'm disappointed.
Not at all much more convoluted, just different.
I think you should make a 2nd attempt, starting with
showMethods(plot, class = "...")
showMethods(plot, include = TRUE)
showMethods(plot, class = "...", include = TRUE)
or then directly
and yes, this is all not relevant to evd where the methods are
