This is pretty cool :)

However, I think I found a bug :p

With the example you give in the source code, @objs will be initialized
to :foo, which is correct.

But afterwards, set_defaults will set @objs to [:sample], which will
fail of course. Maybe the last line should read:

@objs = [name.to_sym] unless @objs

or something :p
