You don't have to, because there's no such a thing in Ruby.
In Smalltalk, a metaclass is a class of a class.

In Ruby, the Class class is the class of all classes, no metaclass.
But every object (of course including classes) can have hidden
meta-object (the place holder for singleton methods), which is only
revealed by the "singleton class notation".
