Well, I anticipate that eventually the project will contain around 30
libraries.  At the moment there are about 5 documented ideas on the
Wiki.  So I don't have a shopping list, rather an open ear for
suggestions.

That said, the things I'm looking for are code people have written
where they think it might have some use outside their project but they
can't be bothered generalising and productising it.  That, and ADTs,
OO patterns, and other things of general interest.

Preferably pure Ruby, unless and until a simply irresistable C-based
contribution comes along.

Cheers,
Gavin
