Feature #7848: Restore default state for core ruby objects
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/7848

Hi.

Consider:

  class String
    def lala
      puts 'Running lala() from class String.'
    end
  end

This is possible.

My question is - is there a reason why we can not restore
to the default ruby state again?

For instance, if I would do:

  String.restore

I could undo all modifications to String, save what was used
in String class on startup/initialize.

The reason I would like to have something like this is so 
that I could safely undo all "monkey" patches again, if needed,
for a given project.
