[Ironruby-core] Lowercase classname

Hmm I've found the documentation for IronRuby now :P It says class
names should automatically be capitalized. This however seems not to
have happened since it plainly isn't available. I have worked around
the issue by renaming it in the source, but this forces me to ship
precompiled dll's instead of referencing the other framework.

Should I file a bugreport? This is on the 1.1.1 release :)
