Normally I'd have been doing that from the start, but I'm not extremely
fond of Emacs's "issue tracker".
Still, that's likely the original reason why they're highlighted with the same face. Class names are closer to constants than constants are to symbols.

I meant that we would preserve the equality between module name and constants' faces. So, if they both switch to font-lock-constant-face, this will be noticeable, as, like you said, module names are used a lot.

Symbols can then use type-face, or preprocessor-face, the latter would be a smidgen less inappropriate.
If you do want class names and constants to have different faces, there is an obvious question of ambiguity. Is "C" a class or a constant? I don't like the idea of it changing color after I type the second letter.
ST2 doesn't seem to highlight either, at all. RubyMine, from what I can tell from a Youtube video, either doesn't highlight them, or, depending on the context, highlights them with the same color (and symbols, too): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnN-JIxDRCg#t=1464s
