Actually, more like chain(stringx, 'trim', 1,'repeatchars',5, 'upper',
nil, '  test  ').

Another idea is chain(stringx):trim():repeatchars(5):upper()('  test
'), which may be preferable to the current approach in
MethodChainingWrapper.  That even allows separation and reuse like

  f = chain(stringx):trim():repeatchars(5):upper()
  print ( f('  test  ') )
  print ( f('  again  ') )
