rake-compiler still doesn't support JRuby, but perhaps a JavaJarTask
is coming, but I'm not holding my breathe until I see these patckes
;-)

The work on this has already started? Gossamer is the codename?

I've no problem working with bleeding edge stuff, as long I can find it :-)

No rush, my only concern is ensure Mongrel itself works on the
upcoming One-Click Installer. Got all the details ironed to do a
release tonight, and when started to install in a sandbox found that
Mongrel wasn't working.

Anyhow, now I have a Mac so 3 way testing between Linux, OSX and
Windows is now possible form my side, so promise not break anything
:-)
