Oniguruma regular expression library bindings for Ruby.

This is the initial release of these bindings, which allow developers
to use the powerful features of Oniguruma (named groups, look-behinds,
etc.) without the need to upgrado to Ruby 1.9 or to patch and recompile
the stable version.

We startet yesterday in the german Ruby-Forum to test the software. Due
to
compiler problems on Windows (I don't have the C-compiler which is
necessary for
the OneClickInstaller-Version) the tests were done by two persons on Mac
OS 10.4
and Linux, both with same result.

The basic problem we encountered was, that an Oniguruma-5 version must
be
available. The binding cannot be compiled for Oniguruma-4 and
Oniguruma-2,
because the associated "oniguruma.h" does not contain definitions which
are
required. This does not match the documentation, which claims
workability for
Oniguruma versions 2 and 4.

The library should support Oniguruma-4 versions, because they will be
used in
Ruby, starting with version 1.9, while Oniguruma-5 is not related to
Ruby. If
one wants to use the pattern matching capabilities of Ruby 1.9, but
still have
problems with libraries, that are not yet ported to Ruby 1.9, needs the
regular
expression engine of Ruby 1.9 in Ruby 1.8 to avoid later porting
problems for
the own software.
