      public Method findMethod(String name, Object[] params) throws MethodMap.AmbiguousException

      Find a Method using the methodKey provided.

      Look in the methodMap for an entry. If found, it'll either be a CACHE_MISS, in which case we simply give up, or it'll be a Method, in which case, we return it.

      If nothing is found, then we must actually go and introspect the method from the MethodMap.

      params - The parameters for the method.
      MethodMap.AmbiguousException - in case of an error.
