apart from the specifics of [pack]:
if a language allows the overriding of built-in methods, then i do not 
see why a social codex (which is what you are asking for, right?) should 
forbid it.
especially, if a language introduces ways to override built-in methods 
after years of existance,  it actually encourages the overriding of 
built-in methods.

i guess miller has spent countless of sleepless hours thinking and 
rethinking how to do this best, so we probably should adapt to it.
