Subject: methods with 'return' values fail when called in void context.
As demonstrated in attached text, , when you call a method in any context other than void, it works fine. However, when you call the same method with a defined return type in void context, it fails validation.

My diagnosis of this concludes it appears to be Context::Preserves fault, but it can't be helped. ( See for respective demonstration ).

MX::MS validates return types by using Context::Preserve to do so, and hooking into => after(), however, the problem with this is context_preserve, in void context, is trying to maintain that void context, so it can't call the actual method in void context *and* still get any values that are returned anyway, despite being in void context.
