May be you should provide more details for what reason you cannot use 
Ruby 1.9.3 to help me understand. And believe me, we went through more 
than 320 packages in Fedora to make sure they are at least buildable 
with Ruby 1.9.3, if they had properly executed test suited, there is 
also high chance that these packages will work. There is less then 15 
packages from the total amount which are still troubling us but these 
packages are typically obsolete anyway (take sdljava as an example).
