I'm experimenting with a new way of distributing applications and libraries. That's why you don't find the usual layout of files and directories. Instead, there's just one big file (realstuff.rb) and a couple of bootstrap files. realstuff.rb is an RBA (Ruby archive) and contains everything you need to run the application or library.
