Ruby seems to lose here.  The syntax #{@myvar} is a rare case of
ugliness.

On the other hand, if you *want* to put each class in a file, you end
up having to painfully "require" each file every time you want to
access a class.  Java can automatically find classes in the current
package and load them.  Or is just me?  Is there a Ruby Way?
