Impressive :-)

Any particular reason why you added the version number to most of the filenames ?
As soon as 1.9 (or whatever version) comes out, you'll have to change all filenames ?

I can understand you do it for the low-level files (ruby18.pp), but fail to
see why you would do it for the rest ? It will make it difficult to upgrade.
