4. even more complex stuff :)

I think the 3rd solution is the best one. The 1st one sounds like
the easiest one, but as you said it doesn't work on all cases.


Can we please get over it and accept that Ruby 1.9 is the official
version now ?
Just to put this in the archive too: rails 2.3 has at least one problem
with ruby 1.9 that is no longer going to be fixed upstream - so ditching
1.8 also means ditching rails 2.3 (or getting maintenance of it on our
own shoulders exclusively).

Fortunately for most things there will be patches around, just as for
the problem I encountered with rails:
