I'd like to help, but I am currently buried (like everyone else, I
know). I'm also stuck trying to figure out why Paul's r30949 causes
two of the Ruby bindings test of merging to fail. Everything looks
okay when I try to replicate from the command line.

Blah, blah, blah. Can't promise anything except I'll look at it as I
have time available.

Just wanted to let you know that I wasn't ignoring you.
