None. Simple assignment does not call any methods. It just takes the
value on the right hand side and says, hey, "L", you now mean that
thing, k? k. :)

With *augmented* assignment (eg "x += 1"), there are methods that get
called, and with non-assignment operators (eg "x + 1"), similarly.
Generally the left hand side defines the behaviour. But simple
assignment is defined purely within the language, as are a handful of
other operators ("x is y", "x and y"). Keeps things simple and
