We have been speaking earlier about adding some support for
JRuby-specific extensions to RubyGems. One small feature that would be
very welcome for us would be to make it possible to require jar-files in
the regular load-path. We have added support for JRuby such that executing
will search for bin_ext.rb and bin_ext.jar on the load path. If the same
would be possible with gems, it would mean we can package extensions and
people can use them the same way .so-extensions are used.
