the short answer is:

   irb(main):001:0> read, write = IO::pipe
    NoMethodError: undefined method `pipe' for IO:Class

The slave library we are using, use pipes and domain sockets, which are
not available with jruby. As with Windows - if someone where to
implement a library with a similar interface to Slave, then it would be
relatively straight forward for us to use this.

What I was hoping we could get wourking, was to run the MiddleMan client
part with JRuby, so that Rails on Ruby or åny other client code could
communicate with a BackgrounDRb server.

Right now this doesn't work either, and there is a jira bug for this:


to the extent we are tracking this, it will be in:
