REXML -- Parsing doctypes (and some some bugs)

(1) How does one parse a doctype in REXML?

Hack solution --
require 'rexml/document'
data =<<EOF
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE Resource SYSTEM "foo.dtd">
p e_get
("@long_name")[1..-2] # => "foo.dtd"

There must be a simple solution I am missing, what is it?

(2) In rexml/dtd/elementdecl, PATTERN_RE is defined twice, issuing a
warning (see

require 'rexml/dtd/dtd'
data =<<EOF
<!ELEMENT foo (bar,baz)>

p REXML:TD:arser.parse(data)
# => /opt/local/lib/ruby/1.8/rexml/dtd/elementdecl.rb:8: warning:
already initialized constant PATTERN_RE
# => /opt/local/lib/ruby/1.8/rexml/dtd/dtd.rb:25:in `parse_helper':
undefined method `PATTERN_RE' for REXML:TD::ElementDecl:Class
# => from /opt/local/lib/ruby/1.8/rexml/dtd/dtd.rb:14:in `parse'
