Yay!  Do it! Do it! :)

I just "learned" Test::Unit last week, and put together a small test 
suite for Copland using it.  I think it would be neat to have the unit 
testing integrated with the gem install.  It would certainly encourage 
developers to create unit tests.

I know ruby-talk has had some discussion of installing binary libraries, 
or compiling them from source, via gems. Do you have any ideas about how 
you are going to accomplish this, or is it still pretty much up in the air?

'a=[];readlines.join.scan(/-(.)\[e|Kk(\S*)|le.l(..)e|#!(\S*)/) {|r| a << 
r.compact.first };puts "\n>#{a.join(%q/ /)}<\n\n"'
