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
