#' Determine if a function is an S3 generic or S3 method.
#'
#' @description
#' `is_s3_generic` compares name to `.knownS3Generics` and
#' `.S3PrimitiveGenerics`, then looks at the function body to see if it
#' calls [UseMethod()].
#'
#' `is_s3_method` builds names of all possible generics for that function
#' and then checks if any of them actually is a generic.
#'
#' @param name Name of function.
#' @param env Base environment in which to look for function definition.
#' @export
