a link

fastercsv -> faster_csv

might be nice…

I’ve received this complaint before. The gem is named fastercsv,
while the library is named faster_csv. (I have no clue why I did that.)

How do people feel about a name change of the gem for the next
release (to faster_csv), realizing this will hinder RubyGems version
control features for previous releases?

seems easier just to provide a gem that installs both : faster_csv.rb
and
fastercsv.rb…

a link would suffice.

Rails has the same issue: gem activerecord vs file active_record.

The next release (very soon now, just needs docs) will have this.
Thanks for the feedback!
