how to monkeypatch Hash's []= method, revisted

So google for a solution to this problem and found myself here:'s+[]%3D+method+#58b80fe0d4eadb1a

But while reading, and admittedly not quite getting the solution, I had a bright moment to balance out the stupid moment, realising that = already has an alias to which you can delegate:

class Hash   def = key, value     store processKey(key), processValue(value)   end end

Hope it helps
