Making monkey patches sane again

Joel Ambass with some good thoughts (and a tiny gem) on monkey patching in Ruby

Applied correctly and with care, monkey patching becomes a powerful tool that every ruby programmer can benefit from.

I really dig his idea and implementation of a version guard as my main source of trepidation when monkey patching around a bug is not knowing if/when I can remove my patch.
