Hi guys,
I'm Kevin. I haven't been active on ruby-talk in the past, but you might 
know me from my blog, http://glu.ttono.us.

Anyway, mkmf is a pain. It's ugly and can't be reused easily. I want to 
write the equivalent for Rake in a clean, well tested, modular fashion 
so that it can be reused by other projects like RubyGems.

Since it will use rake instead of make, longer term goals include adding 
support for generating RDoc.

I could use suggestions for what people want out of this. What do you 
hate about mkmf? What do you like about it? What sort of things could be 
improved?
