Feature #5825: Sweet instance var assignment in the object initializer

* Author: Gosha Arinich
* Status: Assigned
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: Yukihiro Matsumoto
* Category: syntax
* Target version: Next Major
I'm very excited about this feature in CoffeeScript, and think it might
be a nice-to-have thing in Ruby 2.0.

That's how I think it would look like:

class Me
  def initialize(@name, @age, @location); end

So we can declare `@variable`s in the initializer method parameters
definition to avoid assigning instance variables from method arguments
by hand, like:

class Me
  def initialize(name, age, location)
    @name = name
    @age = age
    @location = location
Want to hear what do you guys think, does that feature worth being
included in 2.0?
