I have come across this same challenge several times now, i.e.,
having to write code that implements the Java "best match" semantics
for method invocation using reflection. Usually I end up doing something
that works in all the 'easy' cases and punt on the rest.

For an almost-example, look at Classpath's java.lang.Class.internalGetMethod().

So it would be nice if we could write this algorithm once and for all
and make it public somewhere :-)
