I didn't review the code since I'm not a Ruby hacker, but I did apply 
these and tested basic functionality.  There were no regressions that I 
saw and the API code mostly worked, so I think this can be ACKed.

Of course we make no committments about API stability for a while yet. 
All things are subject to change for now...
