A method which uses 'super' maybe rewritten to be passed down as a  
block to a certain library.
But really this is  not question of usefulness. These is no semantics  
reason why this should be disallowed for a block.
But since 'super' need be treated as an imported variable (just as  
self), for implementation, clang is not capable of
doing it any more. We just have to wait and see.
