problem without it getting too ugly.

To help shed more light on the situation…

In my port attempt (http://github.com/chadj/redcloth/tree/jruby) I was
planning on using the annotation enabled routines for binding Java
methods to JRuby methods. My intent was to sub-class RubyString
directly in Java to implement RedCloth::TextileDoc. Well, that
approach won’t work until RubyString can be subclassed
(http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JRUBY-3039).

I’m curious to see what approach the other folks who’ve attempted the
port have taken.
