That's easy, it should blow up :) That's actually not a UA problem, it's 
a problem of the language being used. Whether that sort of error happens 
at compile time or at run time, or even later in the run time after it's 
worked before, seems irrelevant: a method will be called that isn't 
there and the language will bitch about there being an error, which the 
UA will relay.

Or is there a situation I'm not thinking of?
