Hi,

I figured that since all other identifier names
were valid symbols, that class variable names would 
also be, but apparently not (yet):


pine:~/htdocs/rubycvs$ ruby161 -e 'p :var'
:var
pine:~/htdocs/rubycvs$ ruby161 -e 'p :@var'
:@var
pine:~/htdocs/rubycvs$ ruby161 -e 'p :@@var'
-e:1: parse error
pine:~/htdocs/rubycvs$ 

Is this an oversight, or were they deemed to be unneeded?
