What would be nice (and I'm addressing this more to the community than
to the win32 utils developers) would be little command line tools making
use of the libraries. These could be shipped as examples, but the main
purpose would be to demonstrate how ruby can make your life easier. 

As an example, a common method of passing around urls in my office is to
simply "net send" them to someone. However, retrieving said urls is a
pain, since the popup box does not allow text to be copied from it (!).
So I wrote a very small 'nsgrep' program that simply greps through the
event log and prints out text you can copy/paste - not even 20 lines of
ruby, but it makes life easier. Similarly a command line tool you can
call via "locked <filename>" and will return details of the process
holding the lock on the file would be handy, or a 'df' tool for people
without msys/cygwin installed, etc etc.
