I posted a message a while back about the tainted? trait of objects in
Ruby, and didn't get an answer on the subject.  I'm trying again:

I'd like to hear from Matz, or someone who knows one way or the other,
which
way is the "proper" Ruby way?  Should taintedness be inherited or not?
 I
need to make a design decision about the behavior of a library, and I
want
to be consistent with Ruby's rules on taintedness inheritance.  The
behavior in Ruby doesn't seem to be very consistent across classes, so
I'm hoping someone can clear it up.

Thanks again.
