H with indifferent access

Camping::H hasn't longer indiffenrent access: h = Camping::H.new h.title = Sweet! h[:title] != h[title] Should we (1) don't make it indifferent at all, but rather say you should always use method_missing (2) add indifferent access? Here is one such implementation in 86 bytes, in case we
