But the instance variable would be called :@bar  :)

Hah!  :)

I didn't realize that the `@' is just part of the name... thought it was
some sort of syntax identifier.

Perhaps the error message could be a little clearer, though.  I thought it
meant, "I can't set that variable because it doesn't exist," hence my
confusion.
