I'm afraid I don't totally understand the question. If the class is  
written in Ruby using MacRuby, it can't be used in a non-GC  
environment. If the class is written in Objective-C but used in a  
MacRuby app, it can be used in a RR environment, assuming that it's  
correctly implemented to handle both environments.
