Description

Hi guys !

We have this concept of sending messages to objects with Object#send, and that's fine, but often a child class defines its own send method, so that's why we have this ugly Object#__send__ hack.

So, I suggest dropping Object#__send__ and aliasing Object#send to Object#invoke instead, which seems to me as a better evocative method name.

Good or bad idea ?

Thanks !
