Issue #8939 has been updated by Hanmac (Hans Mackowiak).



Duplicate of Feature #7797 "Hash should be renamed to StrictHash and a new Hash should be created to behave like AS HashWithIndifferentAccess"

others like
Feature #7792 "Make symbols and strings the same thing"
are rejected

you RailsGuys need to understand that there are both String and Symbol and both does have pro and con facts

(always turning sym <-> str is not a good idea)
----------------------------------------
