Interesting project - thanks for providing backwards compatibility with 
QtRuby. I have been a bit poor at moving the QtRuby 3.0 development forward 
recently, but I haven't given up and I think I will manage to get started 
again soon. I am quite excited about the Raspberry Pi, Qt 5 and Ruby 2.0 and I 
think there are a lot of reasons for wanting to carry on getting a really good 
CRuby binding working.

I think it would be a good idea if I could add some compatibilty with the 
JRuby/QtJambi based bindings in QtRuby 3.0, particularly the slots and signals 
syntax, and I'll study your examples and api at some point and try and do
