I can also report that after applying patches and other workarounds, I
have been able to get "require 'active_record'" to work, and that I have
started playing with a simple activerecord use case. Here are some
issues that I have encountered so far:

(1) Bug #20222: super call in initialize method of a module throws an
  - This bug crops up in the Ruby library 'logger.rb'
(2) Ruby library 'Process' not implemented -
  - Is anyone working on this? More specifically, the method
  Process::times() is called by the Ruby library 'benchmark.rb'.
  Implementing this would also require an implementation of Struct::Tms.
(3) Missing method Signal.trap
  - Wayne has also encountered this issue. In my case Signal.trap is
  needed by active_record/transactions.rb.

More will be coming soon as I apply patches and workarounds...
