#' Determine if a function is an S3 generic or S3 method.
#'
#' @description
#' \code{is_s3_generic} compares name checks for both internal and regular
#' generics.
#'
#' \code{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 as a string. Need name of function because
#'   it's impossible to determine whether or not a function is a S3 method
#'   based only on its contents.
#' @param env environment to search in.
#' @keywords internal
#' @export
#' @examples
