  8. Hey, if you need any particular help with Android support in JRuby, drop me a line. I was planning on doing Android/JRuby experiments in a couple of months, but if you're starting sooner, that's cool too!

  10. I thought that JRuby does quite a bit of dynamic Java byte code generation, and that Dalvik doesn't support dynamic byte code generation. Am I wrong on one of those two points? Would you mind giving a brief description of how you've gotten a dynamic language working on Dalvik? Thanks, and exciting work!
