It's a way of distinguishing between an instance method and a class 
method in the documentation. When we say IO#each_byte, we're referring 
to an instance method of class IO, whereas IO.foreach is a class 
method.

I personally don't like to convention too much, but I'm not sure I can 
think of a better one.
