I'm new to Ruby, going through the online User's guide. The "More on methods
(access control)" section
[http://www.math.sci.hokudai.ac.jp/~gotoken/ruby/ruby-uguide/uguide15.html]
states that methods defined 'in the top level' are appended to the Object
class. Then it says that these methods cannot be called with self prefixed,
because they are private, although they can be called fine without the self
prefix.

When I tried the example it gave, however, it worked just fine without the
error the doc said I'd get. Has this been changed in the version I'm
running? (Which is ... ... lessee ... 1.4.6 - Win32)
