what do you think about a macgem with mixed-in ObjC?
This could be useful for supporting native C libraries without using
the MRI C interface, for calling parts of the OS X framework that is
not Obj-C, for speed optimized code and so on.....
A macgem could also be delivered with a precompiled .rbo, so it can
easily be installed on machines without the Developer tools installed.
(I haven't yet tried to run macruby on such a machine ;-) )
BTW, I failed in building an .rbo bundle with a mixed-in ObjC part.
Pure Ruby like this
macrubyc --arch x86_64 -C "foo.rb" -o "output/foo.rbo"
is working, but I didn't find a way to include another .o file
generated by gcc.
