    Can anyone recommend a good method for dealing with shared library
    API changes between revisions while using Ruby/DL? (i.e. being able
    to support accessing various versions of a given shared lib)

    Thanks,

    you can use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to choose hwich one to use, mayb it is a
    good idea not to change the the Ruby API too, another wrapper should
    give you the old behaviour.
