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

How about back ticks? `Some string`?

Since ruby can have single quote string literals it might not be that
obvious that 'Some string' it is not a normal Ruby string.

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?

Tomas
