First of all, why do you want to access them indifferently?
It just sounds a diabolical habit, to me.

Feature #13045: Passing a Hash with String keys as keyword arguments
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/13045#change-62832

* Author: Anatoly Chernow
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal

----------------------------------------
To the following method

~~~ ruby
def new request:, response:
end
~~~
I'd like to be able to pass both

~~~ ruby
hash_with_symbol_keys = { request: another_hash, response: another_hash2 }
hash_with_string_keys = { 'request' => another_hash, 'response' => another_hash2 }
~~~

I would make a lot cleaner parsing many things returned with string keys(like the output of `YAML.load`).

If you don't like the above feature, could you please at least consider adding `Hash#symbolize_keys`(like you did with `Hash#transform_values`)?
