Yep, that looks like a fine idea to me. Wish I had thought of it :-)
This certainly solves Petra's problem [with about 10 lines of code?].

I still think it would be nice for CallMethodRule to be able to target
objects other than top-of-stack, but this approach does reduce the
necessity for it somewhat.
