bug#17947: 24.3; ruby-mode sets require-final-newline unconditionally

Hi Eli, if you are happy with the behavior of require-final-newline, then that's fine and I don't believe you are likely to want to use ethan-wspace. The point of the warning is to make it clear to a user that you can use ethan-wspace, or require-final-newline, but not both. The point of the bug report is merely to ask that if a user wants to use ethan-wspace and not require-final-newline, that they be able to do so.

Thanks Stefan for the quick turnaround on the patch and the context for why the code is the way it is!

Yes, he is.  Which is why I said "I think".  It's an opinion of an
Emacs user who has this variable customized since about forever, and
would find it annoying to be annoyed by such warnings.  User who
customized this variables clearly tell that they want to be in control
of the final newline, so packages that look at that shouldn't.
