I guess you're merely pointing out what Linus Sellberg mentioned.  Yes,
I'm aware that if the first argument is an integer, the behavior is
different.

I'm only talking about the behavior of Array.new where the first
argument is an Array.  It should be removed IMHO.  It should strictly
be:

Array.new(size,obj=nil)
Array.new(size,obj=nil){ ... }

Mind you, I wouldn't mind seeing the block form removed, but I think
I'm outvoted there.
