Any reason not to further restrict the action names hidden by default?

A couple of years ago, no objections were voiced to a proposed patch
of ActionController that would allow controllers to have methods with
the same names as Object's methods (currently,
ActionController::Base.hidden_actions, as called by action_methods,
prevents this).

Such a change is of interest to me since I just blew some time
figuring out why rails wasn't finding a 'clone' method in one of my
controllers. It would be nice to spare others the same.

The 2005 discussion starts at,
and a patch is proposed at

I've put together a patch for the bug, in ticket 7691. Any feedback
would be appreciated.
