Issue #6481 has been updated by akr (Akira Tanaka).

Status changed from Assigned to Rejected

Ruby has a rule that method names should use a bare verb.

For example, matz described it in [ruby-dev:20735].
I'm not sure that matz described it in English.

Although File#exists? is not removed for compatibility,
it doesn't mean we should add Pathname#exists?.
