I was thinking it does the other way round.

   class IO
     alias orig_getc getc
     private :orig_getc

Having private makes orig_getc only callable from io itself. On the other
hand, leaving the "price code line out"

   class IO
     alias orig_getc getc
#     private :orig_getc

would cause following code to execute instead of giving an error:

  c = file.orig_getc
