I usually put the requireNamespace in the "init" method (when it's needed). But I agree that the overhead of putting it in myvar would be negligible.

Ah, ok, I'm used to the forwarders for lappend/unset etc, but didn't notice about trace yet. I now see that there is one for vwait, too.

I used myproc because the name "method" isn't used anywhere in XOTcl.
But indeed, myproc seems to indicate that it only works for procs, which is wrong of course.
