STI method generation optimization

Reducing STI memory usage

if there are many STI child classes, ActiveRecord generates methods for each one individually. This is wasteful in the typical case, since all the children share the same underlying columns.

The small patch included here causes those methods to instead be generated in the parent class, shared amongst all the subclasses.

DO NOT use this if you call methods like attribute :foo to adjust the typecasting of columns in individual models.

Silly SQL trick: computing pi very very inefficiently
View gist:5073866

Inspired by Postgres: The Bits You Haven't Found:

\set n 1000;

SELECT 4*COUNT(DISTINCT(x, y))/(1.0*:n*:n) AS result FROM generate_series(0,:n) AS x, generate_series(0,:n) AS y WHERE x*x + y*y <= :n*:n;

This uses the simple method of checking every integer-valued point in [0,n] x [0,n] to see if it's inside the circle - the Wikipedia approximations to pi article has more details.
