Last night, I was asked about loading objects into a namespace.
Thinking about it, I came up with this:

  module Kernel
    def require_wrap(resource, mod)
      old_lf    = $LOADED_FEATURES.dup
      topconst  = Module.constants
      res = require resource

      (Module.constants - topconst).each do |const|
        mod.__send__(:const_set, const,
          Object.__send__(:remove_const, const))
      end

      $LOADED_FEATURES.replace(old_lf)
    ensure
      res
    end
  end

  module My; end
  module Your; end
  require_wrap 'cgi', My
  require_wrap 'cgi', Your

  puts My::CGI.escape("hello, world")
  puts Your::CGI.escape("hello, world")

I don't know if this is useful -- and it has a few drawbacks. First,
I have no clue whether it will work with deep nesting and
references. Second, it won't work on modifications to already
existing classes. Third, the class name is reported as if it were at
the top level.

The better choice to solve the third is to do what Jim Weirich
suggested: read the file as a string and module_eval it.

But I throw this out for discussion in any case.
