[Pharo-project] Proposal to refactor MethodFinder with pragmas

Currently MethodFinder uses a list of acceptable selectors to execute.
This list of selectors is not maintained which results in a lot of
selectors to exist only in this list as they have been removed in the
system. I propose to use pragmas on classes to generate this list

Here is an example

Magnitude class>>finderApprovedMethods
       <finderApproveInstanceMethod: #max:>
       <finderApproveInstanceMethod: #min:>
       <finderApproveInstanceMethod: #min:max:>
       <finderApproveInstanceMethod: #< >
       <finderApproveInstanceMethod: #<= >
       <finderApproveInstanceMethod: #< >
       <finderApproveInstanceMethod: #<= >
       <finderApproveInstanceMethod: #between:and: >

What do you think?
