Sorry for attaching patches in emails to the mailing list, but I'm still
unable to login to Devjavu for Backgroundrb (I'm able to login just fine for
Merb's Devjavu and submitted a ticket successfully).
Anyway, I encountered a bug when trying to #ask_status of a worker before
it's run (or rather, before its result_hash has been set to something). Not
sure why it's no longer being initialized to an empty hash (since
http://backgroundrb.devjavu.com/changeset/279). I've attached a patch,
defaults_for_packet_master.diff for this.

update_readme.diff attempts to format the README so that it displays better
in HTML and also removes mention of worker tests being generated from the

Let me know if there's a better way for me to submit patches!
