	Memcached is indeed another option. Although it sounded like for  
just one Singleton object cache that memcached would be overkill and  
require yet another dependency for the app. DRb is built into ruby  
and is very simple to use. So simple that he could most likely take  
his singleton class and turn it into a drb server in about 4 lines of  
code.
