It's great to see you are working on this. I also have a fondness for the
memory hungry bastard. I think backgroundrb has a lot of good ideas that
could ultimately be fixed by some thread pooling. Any repair work would
benefit from it being as clean as possible, if people got to Rails 3 they
have lot to worry about anyway. They might as well worry about Backgroudrb
as well. Even if you make some really harsh changes and it only worked
with Rails 3 then so be it.
I checked out the changes and they all look sensible to me (kinda in line
with some hacks we made on our own versions). ... while you are there :-)
if the mood takes you it would be really handy if backroundrb could have
it's configurations split by environment via backroundrb.yml.
