ruby-end, automatically close ruby blocks

In Ruby all blocks are closed with the end keyword. The Emacs mode ruby-electric automatically inserts end when typing a block keyword, followed by a space.

This is a nice feature, but unfortunately ruby-electric comes with some other stuff, such as inserting {} and placing the cursor between, when pressing {.

Since I already have that functionality from enclose-mode, I don’t want to use ruby-electric, so I created a new mode ruby-end that does exactly one thing and that is closing blocks.

The closing block functionality is a very simple task so creating a function seemed best at first, but I decided to create a minor mode ruby-end, because it’s easier to test ( and you can turn it off.
