Isn't it just a decent behavior for any value object to have a readable `to_s` representation?.. Say, for cases like puts-debugging (`puts "Comparing #{set1} to #{set2}..."`) or developer-friendly error messages (`raise "Input was expected to have 4 elements, #{set} received"`).

Feature #13676: to_s method is not overriden for Set

When I call

~~~ ruby
s1 = Set.new
s1<<'tic'<<'tac'
s1.to_s
~~~

I'd expect ['tic', 'tac'] values being printed, not "#<Set:0x0055f331076348>"
