[MacRuby-devel] Rspec Stopped Running Under Macruby

am i understanding the option being described here as manually forcing a
pre-compile of .rb gems to .rbo cached to the gems directory (with caveats
like no backtrace, ymmv)?
anybody working on a generic (system-wide or per-user or configurable?)
cache of arbitrary .rb -> .rbo similar to how rubyinline works, where llvm
intermediaries being built are automatically cached and invalidated when the
associated/underlying .rb changes?
i would be interested to help if somebody is already in-flight with that, or
take a stab it if nobody is -- lmk pls.
