[Rubygems-developers] rubygems/open-uri.rb

When using rubygems with a program that has (or will) be using the  
built-in open-uri, rubygems causes an infinite loop because  
Kernel#open is redefined twice.

I'd like to prevent the namespace collision.

Is rubygems/open-uri still necessary?  What was the issue with the  
rubygems open-uri?

Can we just ditch open-uri and use net/http to keep rubygems working  
on older versions?
