Bug #11230: Should rb_struct_s_members() be public API?
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/11230

* Author: Benoit Daloze
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.2.2p95 (2015-04-13 revision 50295) [x86_64-linux]
* Backport: 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN, 2.2: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
rb_struct_s_members() is declared in include/ruby/intern.h.

However it seems this is a fairly internal API as it returns an hidden Array.

For instance, there was a try to specify the behavior in
https://github.com/rubinius/rubinius/commit/2642a30c57973987d2a7b7e85b3ce1e78100a31b
but that produces only erratic behavior on MRI because that usage is not intended.

A valid usage might be:

    static VALUE get_struct_member(VALUE self, VALUE obj, VALUE i) {
        return RARRAY_AREF(rb_struct_s_members(obj), NUM2INT(i));
    }

    p get_struct_member(Struct.new(:a, :bb), 1)
    

But do we need such access and is it worth exposing a potentially dangerous function like this?
