  Wow, I'm so cool Laurent told me to use Trunk instead of that skanky  
old testing branch!

  I rule!

  Ok, testing...

  svn co http://svn.macosforge.org/repository/ruby/MacRuby/trunk  

... lots of downloading to do...

Checked out revision 124.

$ cd MacRubyTrunk
$ autoconf
$ ./configure --enable-framework --enable-fat-binary --program- 
$ make
$ sudo make install   <--- Bwa Ha Ha, you said rdoc was fixed in trunk!

  Hey, looks like its fixed. I'm getting a different error now:

Resources/Action.rb:8:in `<class:Action>': undefined method

  Generated by this line:


Hmmm... Is that because I'm using rubyCocoa style calls?



  Ok, that worked. Oh, so I have to change all my old calls?

  Hmmm... That's going to be exhausting. I'll have to think about that  
one, since it means a total code migration, 5700 lines to edit.

  Question, the docs imply that:

   person.setFirstName(first, lastName:last)

   Can't be written as:

   person.setFirstName(first, lastName: last)

   Is that true?
