Bug #8459: Idiomatic method names for Socket
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8459

Author: adkron (Amos King)

Target version: next minor

Backport: 1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN


In order to still have the POSIX standard functionality as well as an alternative idiomatic ruby version it would be nice to have some of the methods aliased in the core.

ie

Soket.gethostname => Socket.hostname

There is already a pull request open on the github version of Ruby. https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/320#issuecomment-18591614

Again this changes none of the current method names. This is only to add some idiomatic method names to match.
