Bug #15808: Forwardable doesn't allow forwarding the 'print' message
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/15808

* Author: kyrylo (Kyrylo Silin)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: ruby 2.6.0p0 (2018-12-25 revision 66547) [x86_64-darwin17]
* Backport: 2.4: UNKNOWN, 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
The following program forwards two messages to `@foo`: message 'print' and message 'bar'.
When I forward the 'print' message, I see a warning and the return value of `print` is always `nil`
(despite the fact that I specified my own return value).
When I forward the 'bar' message, it works as expected (I see the return value of 'bar').

``` ruby
require 'forwardable'
require 'ostruct'

class A
  extend Forwardable
  def_delegators :@foo, :print, :bar

  def initialize(foo)
    @foo = foo
  end
end

obj = A.new(OpenStruct.new(print: 123, bar: 456))

p "print - #{obj.print}; bar - #{obj.bar}" 
```

```
forwardable_bug.rb:15: warning: A#print at /Users/kyrylo/.rubies/ruby-2.6.0/lib/ruby/2.6.0/forwardable.rb:158 forwarding to private method OpenStruct#print
"print - ; bar - 456"
```
