Overriding save_with_validation and alias_method_chain error

So i'm trying to override save_with_validation in activerecord
validations.rb and i'm running in to problems with alias_chain method.

module ActiveRecord
  module Validations
    def save_with_validation(perform_validation = true)
      if perform_validation && valid? || !perform_validation
        save_without_validation
      else
        false
      end
    end
  end

  Base.class_eval do
    include Validations
  end
end

Error. (loop)

Whats happening is that my save_with_validation is called when i call
.save then because of the alias chain method its called the
save_with_validation in validation.rb as save_without_validation.

So I found dirty.rb is also alias_method_chain ing save so I tried this

Base.class_eval do
    include Validations
    include Dirty
end

think this would re-alias those methods and it did something where my
error is now different:

what i want to do is grab the data passed in from save like this
object.save(:test) I want to grab that :test my code works when I put it
right in the rails files but not in plugin as i have to override stuff.

can anyone help?
