A possible solution, which would also fit well with Richard's static
proposal, is something along the same lines as Python which requires you to
explicitly pass *self*:

    some_fun(A, B, self) -> ...
    some_static_fun(A, B) -> ...

Then the perceived arity is correct and you get static support for free. Of
course, we cannot use "self" as keyword as Python, but maybe ?SELF or
another special token will suit well.
