Yes, that should work. Can you submit your patch with git-format-patch
so as I can commit it. You also need to submit some test cases, if you
want the patch to in. Also, you are not mentioning whats there in
backgroundrb_environment.rb file.

Just to clarify further, if inside your rails application you need an
array of middleman all you need to do is, creating custom middlemen by
requiring backgroundrb.rb file and changing ip and port to which it
connects. I think, details are pretty bare and should be easily
