I have created a module as follows which adds an initialize method to
the class it is included in.  The problem is that the initializer method
could be easily overriden by the includer Class.  Is there a way to
ensure that the initialize method is run even though it may have been
overriden??

module SomeModule

 def self.included(base)
    base.class_eval do

      attr_accessor :fields, :x_position, :y_position

      def initialize(x_position=0, y_position=0)
        @fields=self.class.xfields.clone
        self.y_position=y_position
        self.x_position=x_position
        for field in @fields
              eval "self."+field[:var] + " = field[:value]"
        end
        @fields = @fields.sort_by{|f| f[:order]} if @fields.find{|f|
f[:order]}
      end
    end
  end

end

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks, Chris
