1. it doesnt have to be a gem to be usable within rails.
   plain old way of installing ruby extensions works well.
2. someone would need to write a acts_as_xapian to get the same
   integration with the rails framework

you are looking more for part 2 right?


           openSUSE - SUSE Linux is my linux
               openSUSE is good for you
