SyntaxError when prefixing delegation to instance variable

Reported by Daniel Schierbeck | October 19th, 2008 @ 07:51 PM | in 2.x

When using :prefix => true in a delegation to an instance or class variable, a SyntaxError is raised:

compile error\n(__DELEGATION__):1: syntax error, unexpected '(', expecting tCOLON2 or '.'

This patch checks the :to value if :prefix => true is set, raising an ArgumentError if it matches ^[^a-z_], that is, if it doesn't look like a method name.
