Yui: could you explain why strip wouldn't remove leading and trailing /\p{space}/ ? I can only see upside to this, but maybe you can point out downside?

Bug #7845: Strip doesn't handle unicode space characters in ruby 1.9.2 & 1.9.3 (does in 1.9.1)

Strip and associated methods in ruby 1.9.2 and 1.9.3 do not remove leading/trailing unicode space characters (such as non-breaking space \u00A0 and ideographic space \u3000) unlike ruby 1.9.1.  I'd expect the 1.9.1 behavior.  Looking at the underlying native lstrip! and rstrip! methods it looks like this is because 1.9.1 uses rb_enc_isspace() whereas 1.9.2+ uses rb_isspace().

1.9.1p378 :001 > "\u3000\u00a0".strip
 => "" 

1.9.2p320 :001 > "\u3000\u00a0".strip
 => "?????"

1.9.3p286 :001 > "\u3000\u00a0".strip
 => "?????"
