Even more so, consider the case in [5] where the proxy forwards its
messages to multiple destinations.  Under the original __mcall
semantics, we would write simply

  function mt.__mcall(self, k, ...)
    print('DEBUG-TRACE', self, k, ...)
    for i,v in ipairs(self) do self[i] = v:[k](...) end
    return self
