[Ironruby-core] nil != null ?

I had specs that used to work but now apparently they don't anymore.
I'd expect that a nil from ruby maps to null in C# but this doesn't seem to
be the case.

I'm using the following code

        public static bool IsNotNull(this object value)
            return value != null;

        public static bool IsNull(this object value)
            return value == null;

>>> ObjectExtensions.is_null(nil)
:0: can't convert NilClass into Object (TypeError)

I'd expect it to return true ;)
