I think I got bitten by markdown's syntax actually, all my * * got replaced, so s/others/**others/g

----------------------------------------
Bug #10708: In a function call, double splat of an empty hash still calls the function with an argument

----------------------------------------
Consider this:
    def foo; end
    foo(*[]) #Splatting an empty list is ok
    foo(**{}) #Double splatting an empty hash is like calling foo({}) which gives an error

This is annoying in a function that is a wrapper around another function and just process some keywords:
    def wrapper(*args, keyword: true, **others)
      puts keyword
      wrappee(*args,**others) #here this code will fail if others is empty
    end
