Currently, rdoc generates url for methods that look like:
This has two drawbacks.
1) This URL is subject to change when methods are added/removed. This makes it impossible to reference the documentation of a method.
2) There is no way to know what method this refers to just by looking at it.
If instead the url looked like:
then it would be human readable and RESTful.
The method name simply need to be URI encoded and suffixed with either instance_method, class_method, or -constant.

- Category set to lib
- Target version set to 1.9.2
This ticket is accepted by Eric Hodel, so I set the target to 1.9.2.
It will be deferred to 1.9.x if the commit is late for implementation

I've attached a patch for this.
Note that the test_rdoc_markup_to_html_crossref makes the issue #3169 I just posted quite obvious. I changed the test only to fit the new naming scheme, and marked the wrong assertions accordingly.
