Issue #9239 has been updated by zzak (Zachary Scott).


How would committing after 2.1 create incompatibility?

If we commit this feature to trunk after ruby_2_1 branch is created, then it won't be released until 2.2, right?

Feature #9239: Array#to_h ignores flat arrays

My understanding was that the newly introduced `Array#to_h` was to be equivalent to `Hash.[]`. But when I give a flat array, it returns an empty hash:

    [:a, :b].to_h # => {}
    [:a].to_h     # => {}

I expected `{:a => :b}` for the first example, and `ArgumentError: odd number of arguments for Hash` for the second example, as is with `Hash[]`. Was it intended to be different? If so, why is that the case? Even if it is to be different, it should at least raise an error when a flat array is given.
