I consider this change important enough for me to request SVN commit
access to ruby/trunk.  I will merge patches/pull requests submitted
using Free/Open Source tools if nobody else has interest.

My primary goal is to make it easier for Free Software zealots (like
myself) to contribute to Ruby.  I'll do my best to not break things for
non-Free platforms and will give other committers a few days/weeks to
review and test before I commit anything.

I have no GPG key and avoid real-life interactions, so no signatures.
My brain is too slow for real-time/real-life interaction.
