[Nitro] Nitro Ruby1.9/JRuby compatibility

I've been talking to Ola Bini - one of the core developers of JRuby - 
about officially supporting nitro. His position is that he doesn't 
consider it stable enough yet, but he's keeping an open mind if it 
stabilises again quickly.

This was because he was unable to find any up-to-date documentation and 
the build fell apart all over the place due to bogus usage of gems (i.e. 
it mostly worked once we had GEM_HOME set up, but rails and other apps 
don't need this if the gems are in the default location). Not big things 
to fix but absolutely critical for a successful first impression. This 
time I wasn't lucky.

Can I +1 the idea to hold back on new features for a bit and just 
stabilise what's there and document / increase test coverage?

Once we get back to a suitable level, I'll be happy to put it in front 
of him again and try to get official support on JRuby. I think an 
announcement like that would do a lot to raise the profile of nitro and og.

It would be great to see you guys at NitroConf Europe next year :)
