[Ironruby-core] using ruby libraries with IronRuby

I have a bunch of things running around in my head that I'm curious about
regarding IronRuby and I'm not sure where to find the answer. I figure my
best bet is to drop my questions here.
The first question I have is what the current status is regarding using
existing Ruby libraries from IronRuby. One of the use cases where I could
see a lot of .NET developers using IronRuby is for writing
specificiations/unit tests for their code. I've been experimenting with
testing some really simple classes written in C# with simple test and I'd
like to see if/how IronRuby could get to the next level of testing which
might include being able to mock/stub behavior. I've used mocha a bit on a
couple Ruby projects and am wondering if someone could help me understand
where IronRuby is in regards to being able to use a ruby library such as
mocha. The second part of the question is what is the best method for
determining what's needed (but not yet implemented in IronRuby) for a given
ruby library to run.
Now assuming it could run an external ruby library, how would you need to
setup IronRuby to properly load it? I assume that's coming when we get gems
+ yaml support and will just be a require 'mocha'?
