Marshal will dump some object with singleton methods
The check for "dumpability" is incorrect:
o = Object.new def o.foo; end Marshal.dump(o) # => TypeError: singleton can't be dumped o.singleton_class.send :prepend, Enumerable Marshal.dump(o) # => "\x04\be:\x0FEnumerablee:\vObjecto;\x06\0", should fail

My understanding is that objects whose singleton classes have included / prepended classes should be dumpable & loadable, but if the singleton class itself has proper instance methods it can't be dumped.
In the example I gave, the first TypeError is ok, since o's singleton class has a :foo method.
Prepending a module should not make it suddenly dumpable.
The check for this is in
w_extended is incorrect. If I'm not mistaken, it assumes that the singleton class is first in the ancestry chain, which is no longer necessarily the case.
