Now that I have my powerbook and am spending more time on this stuff,
that's probably reasonable. I've solicited some assistance from
folks that have better MetaRuby-fu than I do. I have a personal
deadline of approximately 15 September for this, since I have a few
things coming up in late September and early October that depend on it.

It basically breaks anywhere method_missing is overridden by a base
class. Namely, ActiveRecord::Base. I'm not aware of any other
publicly available software that abuses method_missing quite as
wonderfully as we do. ;)
