Issue #12719 has been updated by Yukihiro Matsumoto.

Status changed from Open to Feedback

I want to see a real-world use-case for the feature.
In addition, I don't think the name `merge` is the best for the functionality.

Feature #12719: `Struct#merge` 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.merge(y: 4)
p3 = p2.merge(x: 10)

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

p.merge!("x" => 9)

p.inspect    # => #<struct Point x=9, y=2>
~~~
