Actually the 'though' was here because we do not agree on the special
usecase for #=== I am quite fond of, and I know that. But that was
quite cryptic for the rest of the world, sorry.

BTW it would help me a lot to understand better why my approach of
using #=== on well defined classes, Class and Regexp that is, does not
help to learn.
This is not about bad code or good code, because I will just not agree that
   /===/ === "==="
is bad code ;). [ In my eyes this is probably the most beautiful LOC I
have *ever* written, LOL]

My question would go to the teacher as follows:
   Would students not be curious about seeing an unfamiliar idiom? Is
that not often the motivation of posting questions on this list and
sometimes having quite interesting threads.
Funily I try to prove my assumption with this thread, sort of :).
If you feel this is too OT, never mind.

Thanx
Robert
