 *                  Pathname        - Name of method to execute, If NULL, the
 *                                    Node is the object to execute
 *                  Parameters      - List of parameters to pass to the method,

 *                                    NULL if no parameters are being passed.
 *                  return_object   - Where to put method's return value (if
 *                                    any). If NULL, no value is returned.
 *                  parameter_type  - Type of Parameter list
