[Ironruby-core] Anyone interested in implementing Etc module for Mono?

I've posted an initial "complete" implementation, though I have only done
basic testing. I have a couple of TODO's remaining and some cleanup, as well
as writing actual specs. I still don't have tests running. You can find the
module here:
http://github.com/panesofglass/ironruby/blob/linux/Merlin/External.LCA_RESTRICTED/Languages/IronRuby/Etc/IronRuby.Libraries.Etc/etc.rb

<http://github.com/panesofglass/ironruby/blob/linux/Merlin/External.LCA_RESTRICTED/Languages/IronRuby/Etc/IronRuby.Libraries.Etc/etc.rb>Not
the prettiest thing in the world, but I just wanted to get it working. I
definitely still have work to do.

Cheers,

Ryan Riley
