Hi Hemant,
Thanks for the quick reply.  I will create a git-patch and tests for
you today.  Attached is my own version of backgroundrb_environment.rb,
however I suspect that those who need this feature will want to
implement it in their own way. That is why I put it in
config/backgroundrb_environment.rb outside of the the backgroundrb
source tree.

Once this patch has been commit people will be able to create a
backgroundrb_environment.rb file where they can implement code that
will create a their own MiddleMan or MiddleMen array.  If this file
has not been created then a MiddleMan will be loaded based on the
default configuration file..
