No.  Wait for 2.0 for built-in method combination.  The vague plan is
making open-class to stack methods on the current ones, unless
explicitly removed, i.e.

  class Foo < Object
    def foo
      puts "Foo#foo (1)"
    end
  end
  class Foo # re-open
    def foo
      super  # calls the first foo
      puts "Foo#foo (2)"
    end
  end

will print

      Foo#foo (1)
      Foo#foo (2)

No alias required.

This works as "around".  And "before" and "after" can be rewritten
using "around".  Note that this is not a fixed idea at all.
