[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.
