Clever stuff for golfing, and possibly useful as a way to illustrate the 
meta-programming flexibility of Ruby, but it adds nothing meaningful 
while moderately obfuscating some simple tasks.  You've come up with a 
way to compress two or three lines of trivially understood Ruby down to 
one line of obscure Ruby.  To me, the original two or three "verbose" 
lines are preferable because they are more easily recognized and 
understood by a Ruby coder.
