@/all I'm about to release 0.9.3 which contains just a minute fix, but given the recent problems rubygems had with symlinks if someone can confirm gets installed without errors? Please try on as many versions of ruby as you can (thanks!)

@jaredcwhite You could, but is there any value in making an assumption about how the app using your library is loading Opal?

In general, I'm all for loading all dependencies of your code in the same file, and the runtime is definitely a dependency. :-) However, I kinda consider it similarly to running MRI or RSpec on the server. You can safely assume the Ruby runtime is loaded. Similarly, specs generally only load the code they're specifying; RSpec is assumed to be loaded elsewhere.
