[Ironruby-core] Code Review: MutableStringCenter

I know that at some point, we were always defining multiple overloads in cases like this.  For center, I would have probably included both the old signature and the new one:

Center(CodeContext, MutableString, int len, [Optional]MutableString padding);
Center(CodeContext, MutableString, object len, [Optional]object pad);

...and simply had the more general version do it's protocol-based conversions and then call the more specific implementation.  But I don't know if that's still the convention we're following for the libraries.

Comment  :
  Made changes for MutableString.center to pass specs.  Included flowing taint correctly, subclassing, changing signature to use object and then doing manual conversion.
