Hi

Can I derive Classes from Classes defined in a c-extension of ruby (such as
the mysql - library)?

I tried it, and it works, but it seems I cannot overload the initialize
funktion (aka the constructor)

require "mysql.o"
class DbConnection < Mysql
	def initialize(host, db, user, pass)
		print "In Constructor\n"
		super(host,user,pass,db)
	end
end
con = DbConnection.new("localhost","rubytest","root", "") 

this _does_ _not_ print "In Constructor".

What am I doing wrong?
