this will translate the value of the 'has_key?' message to the parent of HashWithIndifferentAccess (Hash)

Was this a particular problem somewhere? Also, perhaps we should follow Rails' lead with this and implement key? and alias has_key?, include?, and member? to it.

This is a particular problem if you pass an instance of HashWithIndifferentAccess to any function that calls has_key? with a symbol for it's parameter. This would go for any function on HashWithIndifferentAccess that interacts with keys via their identifier.

I use has_key? and am monkey patching this function in my project Berkshelf

It may be a good idea to add the remaining functions or a .to_hash function which accepts an argument to symbolize_keys.

@reset I'm not comfortable with just doing this spot-fix. We should either support all of the hash methods or stick with the current set.

@wycats after using Thor for quite a bit more, I agree. Another option would be to use a pre-existing library which contains HashWithIndifferentAccess/Mashes like Hashie
