Hmm. The key here is that you want more than just delegation; you want
to transform every return value. That's not going to be easy. It would
be easiest and cleanest to skip the whole thing, and have a separate
function for what you're doing here - not a method, a stand-alone
return fr.numerator % fr.denominator == 0
Next best would be the monkey-patching option. Delegation with
transformation is a lot of effort for what you want.
