I asked him and got the answer I expected:

"i don't see how the forces are any different in Ruby. e.g. C#'s
properties makes the question moot because there's not cost to ind
ref"

I do think, and responded to him that there were subtle differences in
the forces, like the use of the @ sigil to mark a direct iv access,
but it was pretty much a wash.
