[Rubygems-developers] lib/rubygems/open-uri.rb needs to stay gone

In order to fix proxy with password, rubygems/open-uri.rb was re-added.
Requiring both rubygems.rb and open-uri.rb causes inifinite loops
(#open calls itself since it is aliased twice).
The correct way to fix this is not to continually re-import open-
uri.rb, but to get changes back-ported from 1.9 to 1.8. There's a
realease coming RSN (freeze in days!). Can somebody spearhead this?
I don't know enough about proxies to make sure the right change is
made to the 1.8 branch.
PS: This breaks Tinderbox, since Tinderbox requires both.
