Well, what I'm trying to do is create a ruby that's parallel.  I need to
call MPI's initialize and finalize to set up and shut down communications
before and after ruby runs, respectively.  I'm using ruby_init(),
ruby_options(), and ruby_run() so that I can get behavior that's very much
like the normal ruby.  I guess that I was hoping to get ruby's exit value
as a return code.

Oh, well, philosophy.

Thanks,
