For a file containing the given class, SomeCoolClass, what would be the proper filename? 1) somecoolclass.rb 2) some_cool_class.rb 3) some-cool-class.rb 4) SomeCoolClass.rb or some other variation? I noticed in the Ruby stdlib, versions 1, 2 and 3 are used.

I'm not sure about the Ruby convention here, but I know Ruby on Rails uses #2 (some_cool_class.rb). In Rails, this convention is necessary for some of the magic: if you reference MyConstant::MyClass and it's not known, Rails uses const_missing to translate that to my_constant/my_class and tries to find that in the load path.
