If I can, I'll finally get round to fixing the bug you have reported with QtRuby

I'll try and write a blog about it soon. It isn't quite a rewrite, but at the 
least it is a major refactor. It will still be based on the 'smoke' libraries, 
but each qt library will have a corresponding Ruby extension - eg qtcore, 
qtgui etc. I am hoping that the code will be a lot easier to understand - the 
current QtRuby code has got into a bit of a mess.

 I am starting by porting the code from the JSmoke QtScript binding to QtRuby. 
Once I have a small 'kernel' compiling I will check  it in to a 'qtruby-3.0' 
branch in the KDE qtruby git repo.
