Awesome to hear! I use it on a daily basis without issues, which means
is going to be more easy the migration now that assimilation (err,
adoption) has started!

Did you based those in mysql-gem and sqlite3-ruby fork I have at github?
MySQL 5.1 is incompatible with the gem, lot of segfaults that I can
blame the extension itself (since DataMapper guys don't face those).
The one in sqlite3-ruby is based on Jamis work and uses rake-compiler.
Can you share the steps you used to build those? I would really love
to integrate and get the smoother experience for everybody!

but rather when there is nothing more to take away.
