Testing out this gem and notice that that the parsing of .se and .nu not working correctly.
For example it not returning any Registrar.

ruby-1.9.2-p290 :007 > r=Whois.whois("")

ruby-1.9.2-p290 :008 > r.registrar
 => nil 

This regex work to get out registrar of .nu domains /Registrar of record: (.+?)\n/


Hi @rendom, the reason for this is because the parser doesn't currently implement that property.

The design decision I took in the past was to return nil in case of unimplemented property, but I'm considering to re-think it and throw an exception in that case to make it more obvious.
