As you may observe an extra array is created for every final element. Enumerator::Yielder#yield method has arity of -1 which wrap every elements in array. The same goes for Enumerator::Yielder#<< method, I'm proposing to change arity for Enumerator::Yielder#<< to 1 from -1 and use it internally for the lazy enum. It will also make << method definition consistent with other classes(Array, String & etc).

I've applied the following set of changes:

which result in the following:

                 user     system      total        real
Lazy:        0.108000   0.000000   0.108000 (  0.108484)

This changes reduces the memory utilization and also by a tiny fraction improves performance for the lazy enumerator
