Hi,

I found this at the top of lib/rexml/xpath_parser.rb in the CVS.

  # Ignore this class.  It adds a __ne__ method, because Ruby doesn't seem to
  # understand object.send( "!=", foo ), whereas it *does* understand "<", "==",
  # and all of the other comparison methods.  Stupid, and annoying, and not at
  # all POLS.
  class Object
    def __ne__(b)
      self != b
    end
  end

But I could not find __ne__ in lib/rexml/* except this.
Is this still needed?

Regards,
