require_relative in 1.8
I know there is little chance that this will be included, as this month is now last
chance for any change in 1.8.x, as 1.8.x is dead, but still I suggest it. :)
Some things like lambda -> operator won't have an alternative for 1.8, so it
is not even possible to make all changes for 1.8.x anyway in backward compatible
But one thing that could perhaps have a 1.8.x version is require_relative, and
it is used a lot in 1.9.x
Folks could i.e. avoid the -> lambda, but still make use of require_relative,
and their gems would work on 1.8.x too.
The absolute filepath could be found out perhaps via
Hmm ok I know this has no chance to make it, no problem :)
I am on 1.9.3 finally myself!

Yes this is a nice feature to have. But last time I tried to backport it was not that trivial (at least to me).
So I'd like to see someone actually create a patch against the actual 1.8.x sourcecode.
