I remember that in the first implementation, when a trait was used by a class, new entries were introduced to the methodDict where the values  are the compiled methods from the trait.

for super sends, the vm looks at the same literal that is returned when calling #methodClass.

So this means that due to updating that, the super sends will just work.
