Subtle change in ruby 1.9

While reading the ruby source code, I found an interesting trivia
nugget about module mix-in semantics, and that it appears to be subtly
changing in 1.9.

I hadn’t seen mention of this change anywhere, so I wrote about it
today.

Interesting.

Slightly off topic, but I’m curious what you think of fine grained
mixins:

This was mostly done in response to “Roles” in Perl 6.
