Awesome work Gordon!

I just switch from my arcane batch files and DLL injector in FreeBASIC to pik!

Also, I've started to open Issues on GitHub to keep track of what I
find from this side of the line (hope you don't mind).

Doing system wide can be tricky, or propagate that change to the whole
environment requires some DLL injection.

Right now I only need to have one ruby in the PATH to be able to fire
it, which is cool :-)

Maybe I can help you out on that front ;-)

Again, awesome work man and thank you for sharing this.

PS: Please post to Ruby-Talk, lot of folks will rejoice from using this!
