Well, I write a lot of scripts to help me run household accounts, print 
labels, calendar, diary, journal, etc, etc.  I would feel lost without 
them.  They all have guis and many use stock images in menubars and the 
like so there would be a lot of editing and testing needed to make them 
work.  On the other hand I am testing mga2b3 on a new X51, intending to 
keep Mageia 1 on my production machine until the dust settles, so 
realistically the importance is low, say 1 just now.  I don't intend to 
edit these scripts for the X51 but I would like to think it could simply 
replace the workstation at some point without bother.

The latest version I could find on SourceForge was 1.4, which fell over 
because for some reason ruby was looking for 1.3.  Thanks for your interest.

One more point.  AFAIK the image stuff is bundled with ruby 1.9 so if we 
move to that sometime the ball will be in somebody else's court.
