Issue #4233 has been updated by mame (Yusuke Endoh).

Target version changed from 2.0.0 to next minor

Thank you drbrain for the explanation!
Recently, nahi is not so active.  So, I'm sorry but I recognize this as
a (bad) spec of 2.0.0.

Feature #4233: autoload Can't Require Gems

Author: runpaint (Run Paint Run Run)

Target version: next minor

 Is it intentional that when used via `autoload`, `require` can't handle
Gem names?

     run@desktop:~/mir/ruby$  →  ruby -e 'p require "nokogiri"'
     run@desktop:~/mir/ruby$  →  ruby -e 'autoload(:N, "nokogiri"); p N'
     -e:1:in `<main>': cannot load such file -- nokogiri (LoadError)
