Printing private members doesn't work #26

Example:

Simple <- R6Class("Simple",
  public = list(x=1),
  private = list(y=2)
)
s <- Simple$new()
s
# <Simple>
#   Public:
#     x: 1

For non-portable objects, printing private members works:

Simple <- R6Class("Simple",
  portable=FALSE,
  public = list(x=1),
  private = list(y=2)
)
s <- Simple$new()
s
# <Simple>
#   Public:
#     private: environment
#     self: environment
#     x: 1
# 
#   Private:
#     y: 2
# 

The problem is that for portable objects, there's no direct reference to the private environment; the only way to get there is via the environment of a method.
