Well, I am sure that yesterday we observed that we couldn't see it, but yes,
on doing it from scratch, it does appear to work. Could it be that I
already had the object 5 in the irb session, and its methods were not
updated? No, that doesn't seem to apply either. Perhaps it was a quirk
As a bunch of .net programmers, we were perhaps phased by 1.5 hours of
command line hacking ;^)
