I'm not much of a C/C++ programmer, either (even less so than I am a Java
programmer, actually).  In Ruby it's possible to rename an inherited class
method and then define a new method with the original name, effectively
allowing overriding of class methods.  Maybe it's the dynamic vs. static (no
pun intended) typing that accounts for the difference.
