I have written an extension for accessing memory mapped devices from  
Ruby.  This extension is of particular interest to those using Ruby in  
embedded devices.

Is this something that may be useful in the mainline of Ruby?

The code is here: http://github.com/dougbradbury/memory-mapped-io-ruby-extension/tree/master

I'm willing to make it conform to the groups standard and submit a  
patch if there is any interest.
