layout should accept a symbol as layout name

Reported by Neeraj Singh | May 15th, 2010 @ 06:31 PM

class BankController < ActionController::Base
  layout "bank_standard" # works
  layout :bank_standard  # FAILS

layout should accept both string and symbol as layout name.

In case symbol is specified as layout name then first a method call should be done to get layout name. However if no such method exists then apply the layout specified as symbol.
