I was checking this out this week as well, you've written an excellent explanation. I think it's worth noting too that SWIG (link) does ruby output, and can handle a lot of the wrapper code generation.

thanks again!

    i'm not entirely convinced SWIG works well for generating OO wrappers around C code, C++, sure.

    i couldn't get it to treat an opaque pointer to a C struct as the class instance and attach arbitrary instance methods (as you can when you use Data_Wrap_Struct directly), but that may just be user error on my part..
