What's the rationale on waiting to move these to be under Clownfish?
It will certainly work for Logan, but my instinct is that it will be
easier to get other Ruby programmers involved if they can treat the CF
bindings as a given, rather than something they have to wrestle with.
I'd suggest moving them now, and then moving the Perl bindings over as
soon as the model is established.  Right now Clownfish is a
significant hurdle to new programmers, and compartmentalizing might
help overcome this.
