Rdoc: rdoc/usage missing in Ruby 1.9
I've been transitioning to Ruby 1.9.1, and it appears that rdoc/usage was deleted in revision 14994 without apparent explanation.
This breaks my command line utilities. Was there some reason for removing this functionality from rdoc, or was it a mistake?

- Target version set to 2.0.0
I don't know the true reason, but I guess the file was deleted
just because it was not needed by rdoc itself.
Anyway, it was deleted before 1.9.0, so we should think this is
spec change. You can request the restoration of the file, but
it is a feature request.
I moved this ticket to Feature tracker.

I'm not going to add rdoc/usage.rb or any similar feature back to RDoc.
OptionParser handles this type of feature much better than RDoc will ever be able to.
May I close this?
Yes. You have a right to make decision about libraries that you
are a maintainer for.
