Yes, it is on our wishlist for almost a year. The key problem is that we 
don't have
access to an *experienced* Ruby programmer. If in the community there is 
a person, who also knows C, and who has some spare time to help out, we 
are glad
to join forces to create this API.

Our estimate is that wrapping Mapi library into Ruby is a matter of a 
few days
(or even less). The subsequent construction of the driver classes takes 
more time.
