ActiveResource will not ship with Rails 1.2

It was never inteded to. Having it bundled in was an oversight.

All "included in Rails" would mean is that it is marked as a dependency in
the gem specification so that when you do "sudo gem install rails" it would
slurp down ActiveResource.

If we never bundled ActiveResource with rails, all you'd ever have to do if
you were planning on using it in a rails app is "sudo gem install
activeresource".

As for when ActiveResource will be released as a gem, regardless of whether
rails will mark it as a dependency, there is currently no set timeline.

We are currently using it already in production at 37signals and so are at
least a couple other people in core (or at least, it appears they will be
soon).
