  Description     : symbols-only hash for Ruby

 SymbolTable is a handy little Ruby class that was conceived from the union of
 Hash and Symbol. SymbolTable directly extends Hash, but it stores all keys
 internally as symbols. Any key that cannot be converted to a Symbol is not
 While this may seem restrictive, it does have the nice side effect of making
 all keys slightly more memorable and usable. For example, values may be set
 and retrieved using any key that resolves to the same symbol.

Note: Just like ruby-raemon, this is a dependency of Fuel which I am
currently packaging. Fuel is a tool to deploy OpenStack.
