multiple parses show "warning: already initialized constant Kget" #31

If a program makes multiple citrus parses, then a ruby warning will be shown:

"...gems/citrus-2.4.0/lib/citrus/file.rb:56: warning: already initialized constant Kget"

This should be easy to fix (if constant is already defined, don't redefine it), but when I dived in the source code of file.rb, I've seen in line 56 that the constant definition uses metaprogramming, so I better leave the change for expert hands...

PD: The parser is fantastic :)
PD2: I've tested and seen that citrus is 10x faster in MRI-ruby than in Jruby - maybe it would be usefull to leave some tip in the readme about it

This behavior is intentional. It's designed to prevent you from loading the same grammar twice unnecessarily.
