Erubis template parsing error on invalid match for variable name containing "do"

Reported by Mike | May 11th, 2010 @ 01:23 PM | in 3.0.2

Re: Rails 3.0.0.beta3

See add_expr_literal method in Template::Handlers::Erubis. The expression BLOCK_EXPR falsely matches "do" during template compilation for a variable named "todo."

To reproduce, generate a scaffold for an entity named "Todo." The default output for the "Show" link is malformed and generates a syntax error ("unexpected tIVAR, expecting keyword_do or '{' or '('").

BLOCK_EXPR probably just needs word boundaries or whitespace around the "do."
