[Ironruby-core] aaah yes ... clr interop

In principle, this is absolutely something that could be done (though I wouldn’t expect we would do it any time soon).

*but*, this doesn’t do what I think you want. Previously-compiled calls to SomeClass.MyMethod won’t actually end up going to Inheritor.MyMethod even if the object is of type Inheritor. The base method would have to be defined as “virtual”, or the new method will end up in a new slot on the method table.

I'm sorry I'll probably keep hitting all those points while I'm writing integration specs.

Ok so would it be possible to have a way to configure the underlying type which methods it needs to redefine with a new operator

public class SomeClass{
    public void MyMethod(){

public class Inheritor : SomeClass {
    public new void MyMethod(){
       //some new logic here

something like

class Inheritor < SomeClass

  redef_method :my_method
