[edit] Ruby Geohasher v1.2

This implementation IS FULLY 30W-compliant.

ScottKuma did this as a first excursion into Ruby. Yes, it's long. Yes, it's kinda clunky. However, IT WORKS!

v1.2 adds the ability to use unix-style commandline options in any order.

Any changes, suggestions, etc. are happily accepted!

# == Synopsis
# geohasher: prints geohash coordinates for a given date & graticule
#
# == Usage
#
# geohasher [OPTION] ... 
# -d, --date YYYY-MM-DD:
#   the date in YYYY-MM-DD or YYYY/MM/DD format), 
#
# -t, --lat x:
#   the latitude "base coordinate"
#
# -g, --long x:
#   the longitude "base coordinate"
#
# -m, --dow x
