This is mostly a theoretical discussion for me,
as I do not have strong opinions either way.

And I am not familiar with Ruby's source.

But I was not suggesting we stop using a hash
for this. (I know it sounded like that.)

Rather, would it not be possible to store information
separately for purposes of introspection? This would
not impact method lookup time, but would preserve 
order in reflection.

There would be a memory impact, of course.

Thoughts?
