Feature #4254: Allow method transplanting
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/4254#change-24902

Status: Rejected
Priority: Normal

Target version: 2.0.0


=begin
 Is there a technical reason to not allow re-binding a method from one module to any other module ?
 
   module M
     def foo; "foo"; end
   end
 
   module N; end
   N.send(:define_method, :foo, M.instance_method(:foo)) #=> should not raise
 
 It's like monkey-patching. Powerful, dangerous, but also really useful. It could allow different variations of method_wrap or alias_method_chain that are not possible right now.
