I'm not advocating these abstract methods in Ruby. On the
contrary, I don't like them either.

It's just that, when I read this thread, I thought: Can I do
that with my meta-meta-programming library? Answer: yes. That's
all what I wanted to know... :)

It's not about "yes or no", but about "how if yes"...
