Feature #5006: Allow ~> as a method

It occurs to me that since RubyGems uses ~> as a recognized version constraint operator (along with >, <, >= and <=) it would be nice if Ruby supported it as a valid method. Ultimately RubyGems could use the new method in it's code. But more generally it could be useful too, as it has a couple of nice features, namely the '~' part can be thought of as meaning "approximate", and as a whole it looks like a pointing arrow.
