 ^^^^^^^
	Is there any "automatic" way to create hash from ary (above). I
	didn't find any. (I know hash = Hash[[1,2,3,4]], but I doesn't
	work for this)

	Don't you think that it is strange is hash.to_a produces ary
	(above), but there is now way to create hash back from this ary.

	I think we should define new method
		class Hash
			def Hash::new_from_array(*ary)
				if ary.size == 1 then ary = ary[0] end
				hash = {}
				ary.each do |i|
					hash[i[0]] = i[1]
				end
				hash
			end
		end
	Or something like this, but with achieving compatibility with
	'old' style Hash[].
