> Ruby's behavior seems best to me.

We can obtain the Ruby behavior easily.  There is one check in in the '_simple' function that needs to be removed (see attached patch).  Whether or not the Ruby behavior is the "correct" behavior I am still not sure.  In any case, I think throwing an exception is to aggressive for this case.
