[Ironruby-core] Lowercase classname

This might be a bug in the documentation :-)? Method names are mangled so that you can use foo_bar  to call FooBar method.

You should be able to use const_get(:foo) to get to the constant.

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 :)
