Summary:
Create a pure Ruby win32-ole library

Detailed description
The current Win32OLE library is a C monster, has some bugs, and doesn't have a particularly good interface.

I think a pure Ruby version would be easier to write and maintain, could have a more Ruby-ish interface, and could be
installed as a gem instead of people having to wait for the next release of Ruby.

Regards,

Dan (me)

There is the pr-win32ole project is on github:

https://github.com/djberg96/pr-win32ole

I don't know if it still works. Really, I'd like a whole new
interface, not just a port, and I don't have the energy for it.
I'm going to leave that to someone else.

tell them to use it :)

Nothing lately. I think I'm going to move them both to git soon.

See the 'pure' project for more details. It's not released yet,
but it exists in SVN. Many thanks to Heesob!
