Today's mission, and I *have* chosen to accept it, is to port Module::Build for us Ruby types. Ruby is sadly lacking in a consistent build/test/install mechanism. Myself and two other CORE members are going to get started on it today
We were originally going to work on ExtUtils::MakeMaker, but autarch's comments led me to Module::Build and I think it's the better way to go. So, thanks autarch!
