Ahh, but it’s a subtle reminder that even if something is possible one
shouldn’t always do it, at least without thought to the consequences.

Yeah, but it doesn’t expose anything that didn’t already exist in Ruby.
If the function didn’t exist, you could write it yourself:

class Object
def instance_variable_set symbol, obj
eval “@#{symbol}=obj”
end
end
