Ah, my mistake. I misread your e-mail. So, actually the MacRuby GCD  
implementation isn't an Obj-C wrapper but rather a "baked-in" C  
wrapper around the C-level GCD API. As for whether it makes sense to  
include more wrappers, I would say "Yes! Definitely!". But, it's  
important to remember that these wrappers wouldn't just be MacRuby  
wrappers, they would also work as Obj-C wrappers for developers  
working with regular Obj-C Cocoa. So, if you'd like to get started,  
maybe the best thing to do would be to check with some Cocoa devs and  
see what C APIs they would like wrapped.
