I would probably just send #asString to the symbols vs. adding the new
method.  I agree that returning an instance of the same class is the
correct behavior.


Terry Raymond:
RE: Symbol>>capitalized?

I would not recommend this. Normally, one would expect
that a transformation like #capitalized would return an
object of the same class. It would make more sense to
define #asCapitalizedString and change the code to use it.
