also , is it wrong to use the x => y construct in other context than 
describing hashtables?

in my case my idea was to associate symbols with values in a sort of 
.net attribute/annotation way

"
meta.some_prop= :parent_of => [:sometype,:someprop]
attr_accessor :some_prop
"

it works just fine for everything except for set properties. (whatever 
you might call them in ruby)

"
meta.my_meth :foo => :bar
def my_meth()
end
"

works just fine..
(the "meta" is an extended method on Class which returns an attribute 
object which in turn handles method_missing and then stores the 
class,methodid and data in a static lookup)
