Neat; but what I'm looking for may be just unreasonable.  When I
require 'mathn', it does:

class Fixnum
  alias / quo
end

class Bignum
  alias / quo
end

I wanted to wrap that require in a namespace, so that its changes
to core classes would be isolated to that namespace.

. . . But I don't mean to belabor the point - as it seems that
namespaces aren't going to "wrap" definitions automatically...
