Description

imo an exception in this hook methods should be possible to prevent the adding in the ancestor chain

module A
def self.included(mod)
raise "dont include me"
end
end

module E
include A
end
##>> RuntimeError: dont include me

E.ancestors #=>[E,A]
what i want:
E.ancestors #=>[E]

maybe other hook methods like method_defined should get an "prevent" option too

maybe for not breaking code we could add "before_included" where an exception could be raised

I think you are looking for Module.append_features:

module A
def self.append_features(mod)
raise "dont include me"
super
end
end

module E
begin
include A
rescue
end
end

p E.ancestors #=>[E]

If you don't call super it also won't be included.

ah good to know, but not the best way. What if i want that a Module is extendable but not includable? Then append_features may not what i want
