Feature #9686: Syntax for symbols used in hashes

----------------------------------------
Symbols are often used literally as keys in hashes like this:

`{foo: 'bar'}`

But acutally there is a little inconvenience when using the alternative :"name" literal syntax:

`string = 'foo'
{:"#{string}" => 'bar'}`

It would be great if Ruby provided the possibility to write the second example like this:

`string = 'foo'
{"#{string}": 'bar'}`

This would be logical, because you can write both syntaxes the same way when not using them in hashes.
