I ended up doing a simple drb service external to the Rails application. 
I didn't want to do it at first since I've been doing similar things 
with Java RMI...

It starts a new thread (apart from the threads drb starts itself) on 
every request in order to return directly. Works good. It was extremely 
simple code. Now I only have to make it a deamon/service.
