[MacRuby-devel] Standard Ruby for desktop apps?

With MacRuby seemingly abandoned, is there any constituency for using 
standard Ruby for Mac desktop deployment? I was very interested in 
trying to use Ruby with Tk, but was stymied by the lack of deployment 
API's. Tk is old-school, but it has the virtue of actually working with 
standard Ruby when nearly every other Ruby UI toolkit and framework does 
not (wxRuby, etc.) Is there any way to abstract any of the 
MacRuby/Ruby-Cocoa packaging tools (such as standalonify) into a general 
app bundling package?
