Issue #17472 has been updated by marcandre (Marc-Andre Lafortune).


Count me in the "No" camp.

`HashWithIndifferentAccess` has horrible semantics. It may have had a reason to be when Ruby didn't support symbol garbage collection and Rails didn't require an explicit mapping of HTTP Request to params, but not today.

Feature #17472: HashWithIndifferentAccess like Hash extension

----------------------------------------
Rails has [ActiveSupport::HashWithIndifferentAccess](https://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveSupport/HashWithIndifferentAccess.html), which is widely used in Rails to handle Request, Session, ActionView's form construction, ActiveRecord's DB communication, and so on. It receives String or Symbol and normalize them to fetch the value. But it is implemented with Ruby. If we provide C implementation of that, Rails will gain the performance improvement.
