Your patch is a good workaround for you but cannot be included, as it's not going to work as expected if the user uses macruby_deploy --bs on a system where BridgeSupport preview has not been installed.

I committed a fix that should work in all cases: we now parse the BridgeSupport file version number and propagate it to MacRuby core, which will accordingly load the hacks.


Let me know if it works for you. I just wrote that patch and haven't got the time to fully test it yet.

Once BridgeSupport preview ships with a version of Mac OS X, it will be time to finally get rid of the hacks :)
