3) http://github.com/raggi/ruby_service_helper/, and I recommend you  
also use http://github.com/raggi/rubyw_helper/, these work with win32- 
service-0.6.1. If you're on a mingw build of ruby, you may need to gem  
install --platform=x86-mswin32-60 win32-service first, as gcc can't  
deal with SEH.

The above provides something that's relatively easy to prototype, but  
also still mostly debuggable:
