end

module B

include A

end

module C

include B

end

module Monkeypatches

  classes.each do |klass|
    descendants.each do |descendant|
      descendant.send(:include, klass)
    end
  end
end

#included(klass) ⇒ Object

Most of the magick is in this hook which creates a closure over the parent class and then builds an “infector” module which infects all descendants and which is responsible for updating the list of descendants in the parent class.
