Btw, do you know that Phil Tomson's TaskMaster 
<http://raa.ruby-lang.org/list.rhtml?name=taskmaster> has exactly this 
purpose?

(although I don't know which is its status, nor if it has been ported to 
         ruby 1.8)

Can you explain in which way your framework is different, please?

Ciao,
Giuliano
