The gem identification thing is the next big item ticket on my plate. I
want to get the JRuby .jar thing settled first, then I'm off to look at
the platform issue.
I would suggest not adding stopgap measures for now. I don't think it
will take that much to do the right thing.
I'll have to dig up my notes on this and post on this soon.
