Feature #3222: Can bignums have singleton class & methods?

 Fixing up the rubyspecs led me to the following:
 
   bn = 1 << 100
   class << bn
     def foo
       42
     end
   end
   # => TypeError: can't define singleton method "foo" for Bignum
 
   bn.define_singleton_method(:foo){42}
   # => TypeError: can't define singleton method "foo" for Bignum
 
 On the other hand...
 
   module Bar
     def foo
       42
     end
   end
   class << bn
     include Bar
   end
   bn.foo # => 42
 
 If Ruby won't allow singleton methods for Bignum, then shouldn't it disallow access to the singleton class completely?
