As `tally` does not take a block, `&:itself` is not used.
It's a mistake in the rdoc.

Feature #15590: Add dups to Array to find duplicates

Many times I find myself debugging data and the need of finding duplicated values inside of an Array.

Based on the amount of data it could be a simple `array.detect { |value| array.count(value) > 1 }` or a more performant way like

```ruby
def dups_for(array)
  duplicated_values = []
  tmp = {}
  array.each do |value|
    duplicated_values << value if tmp[value]
    tmp[value] = true
  end
  duplicated_values
end
```
 
It would be awesome if there was a way directly from the core language to call `dups` (or another name, as it could be too similar to the current `dup`) on an array in order to get all the duplicated values.

I'd love to create a PR for this, but my C level is non-existent
