So it sounds as though the problem is just for const_missing() originated 
calls? Although both missing methods and missing constants end up calling the 
same qtruby missing_method handler. Maybe only call super is the missing item 
starts with an uppercase letter, or give a different error message than for 
things which look like methods.

Good point, I didn't know that was involved.
