Feature #12165:  Hash#first, Hash#last
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/12165

----------------------------------------
Just run into a simple problem with a colleague and was wondering why there is no Hash#last method?

~~~ruby
{a: true, b: false}.last
NoMethodError: undefined method 'last' for {:a=>true, :b=>false}:Hash
~~~

Interestingly I while playing arround I found out that the Hash#first method works. But why is it not in the ruby-doc?

~~~ruby
{a: true, b: false}.first
=> [:a, true]
~~~

I would assume the Hash#last method would work like the Hash#first method:

~~~ruby
{a: true, b: false}.last
=> [:b, false]
~~~

If I am not wrong the order of a Hash is always the same when calling Hash#each. So wouldn't it make sense to have Hash#last method?

I tested it in Ruby 2.2.4 and Ruby 2.3.0.
