Aha! ok, that makes sense. I'd be interested to see how you got around  
that - short of manually building some sort of lookup graph of your  
app's module space as you define new modules, I can't think of a way  
around it. Had been considering Class#ancestors and Class#constants,  
but those (I think) reflect inheritance heirarchy, rather the  
heirarchy of scopes in which they're defined.
