Richard Purdie - May 23, 2013, 9:47 a.m.
Having a global method scope confuses users and with the introduction
of parallel parsing, its not even possible to correctly detect conflicting
functions. Rather than try and fix that, its simpler to retire the global
method scope and restrict functions to those locations they're defined
within. This is more what users actually expect too.

If we remove the global function scope, the need for methodpool is reduced
to the point we may as well retire it. There is some small loss of caching
of parsed functions but timing measurements so the impact to be neglibile
in the overall parsing time.

-    What is a method pool?
-
-    BitBake has a global method scope where .bb, .inc and .bbclass
-    files can install methods. These methods are parsed from strings.
-    To avoid recompiling and executing these string we introduce
-    a method pool to do this task.
-
-    This pool will be used to compile and execute the functions. It
-    will be smart enough to
