AIUI, Ruby wrappers to JS typically just bundle the JS, so when
packaging for Fedora you'd want to unbundle the JS and point them to
the system library.  (Node.js wrappers to pure-JS libraries like
jQuery work the same way.)

I already partially covered this in the Node.js case, but I've now
expanded it to include foreign language wrappers as well:

So the only thing that would change for you is the location, but at
least there will be one centralized directory for this going forward.

I'm sure Rails and other such frameworks will benefit from a one-stop
shop for assets as well.

If there's anything further that can be done to make things easier,
please let me know.
