[Ironruby-core] Comparing CLR strings and Ruby strings - a slightly surprising behaviour

I'm going to use single quotes for formatting CLR strings via inspect.
"clr:" prefix is too long and it gets in your way when working mostly with CLR strings.

>>> "Some string"
=> "Some string"
>>> "Some string".to_clr_string
=> 'Some string'

Sounds good?

+1 for something like that - this way the failed assertions or people
using stdout for debug would not be fooled.
