I can try it next week once I have my machine set up again. I'm unable to
try it until then, unfortunately. Also, I noticed that JRuby is sharing the
same implementation (or similar), but both are based on FFI, not straight up
Ruby.

Has anyone started working on an IronRuby FFI impl? If not, would it be
better to start working on this and get Etc working with FFI?
