At OOPSLA there was a paper titled "Fast Algorithm for Creating Space
Efficient Dispatching Tables with Application to Multi-Dispatching"
described at http://oopsla.acm.org/fp/files/pap-4-optimizations.html and
is on his homepage at http://www.cs.technion.ac.il/~zyoav/

This work looks very promising but requires some time to stop and freeze
the objects (and the relevant protocols) involved. Possibly the best way
to handle it would be to allow a collection of objects to use one
meta-object to describe and implement that lookup algorithm for them all
