[Haskell] ANNOUNCE: Hubris 0.0.2, the Ruby-Haskell bridge

The first vaguely usable version of Hubris is out on Hackage now.

New stuff
   * now capable of building dynamic libs so that you don't need to  
have GHC installed on the production server.
   * extensible marshalling through a pair of typeclasses
   * automatically generated interface to Haskell from Ruby rather  
than the hacked-up manual packing/unpacking solution the first version  

For example:

require 'hubris'
class HsString
   hubris :module => 'Data.ByteString', :packages => ['bytestring']

   => "dcba"
It requires the ghc 6.12 release candidate, and if you're on Mac,  
you'll need to apply the cabal patch at http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage/ticket/591 
  and the ghc patch at http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/3550

You'll need to follow the installation instructions at http://github.com/mwotton/Hubris 
, as it needs a little extra info about ruby headers etc.

Let me know if it works, if it breaks, if I've missed an obvious  
better way, if it's at all useful to you...
