[ruby-dev:28436] Re: Affinity of "win32/registry" and "dl/win32"

take_tk claimed that using with dl/win32.rb doesn't work
fine. On this background, WATANABE Hirofumi decided that
should be replaced with *.rb which only requires dl/win32

[ruby-dev:28466] instance_eval

Hidetoshi NAGAI claimed that instance_eval doesn't pass self via block
parameter on recent ruby. He proposed that this change is mighty for
Ruby 1.8. Matz agreed and 1.8 behavior is recovered. But 1.9 doesn't
support it. On 1.9, use instance_exec() instead and pass self
explicitly. Matz said this change is due to [ruby-core:07364].

[ruby-dev:28471] alias and caller

U.Nakamura pointed out that recent Ruby interpreter doesn't show aliased
caller method name with caller().

  def foo
    p caller(0)
  alias aliased_foo foo

  # ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-cygwin]
  #=> ["test.rb:2:in `aliased_foo'", "test.rb:5"]

  # ruby 1.9.0 (2006-02-14) [i386-cygwin]
  #=> ["test.rb:2:in `foo'", "test.rb:5"]

And U.Nakamura proposed __method__ method which reported on
[ruby-talk:187149]. Matz said also __callee__ method should be prepared.

This issue is still open.
