[MacRuby-devel] Standard Ruby for desktop apps?

Hi Kevin,

I don't think many app developers would want to publish their source code through the iTunes store. Another developer would quickly "swallow it up" into a larger application. I wouldn't be interested in any solution that doesn't compile the code.

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?
