Not any use to you at all, but in Smalltalk, variables are just keys in 
a namespace and namespaces are dictionaries (hashes).  It would be nice 
if the same were so in Ruby but, AFAIK, variable mappings are held 
internally to the Ruby interpreter and not exposed.  If they were, then 
this would be much easier...
