Perhaps I missed it, but I don't recall you addressing Richard's
suggestion of adopting your change but using some other selector than
#initialize to avoid breaking existing code.
Its name is unimportant, as long as it's not already being used
somewhere as an instance method.
What do you think of this idea? We could still go through the code and
clean up existing (mis) uses of the initialize patterns.
