Bug #12719: `Struct#|` for partial updates

----------------------------------------
Other languages have operators for performing partial updates on maps. I feel like Struct could be more useful if it provided an easy way of performing partial (or full) updates.

After the change you can do the following:

~~~ ruby
Point = Struct.new(:x, :y)

p = Point.new(1, 2)
p2 = p | { y: 4 }
p3 = p2 | { x: 10 }

puts p.inspect # => #<struct Point x=1, y=2>
puts p2.inspect # => #<struct Point x=1, y=4>
puts p3.inspect # => #<struct Point x=10, y=4>
~~~
