Issue #10863 has been updated by bug hit.


Does the proposed feature make sense?

----------------------------------------
Feature #10863: allow protected class methods to be callable from instance methods
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10863#change-51998

```ruby
class Bar
  class << self
    protected def foo_helper
    end
  end
  
  def foo
    self.class.foo_helper
  end
end
```

here, Bar::foo_helper is not intended as the api of the class, it's a helper for internal use so it should be possible to use it internally without making it public or resorting to `send`
