[PATCH] Allow to configure additional preludes
Could you please accept the patch , which adds new '--with-prelude' configuration option. This configuration option allows to specify additional preludes and compile it into prelude.c, therefore execute the code on each start of Ruby.
In Fedora/RHEL/CentOS, there is ABRT tool , which allows to automatically report program failures. I developed abrt gem [3, 4], which adds support for catching of unhandled Ruby exceptions, this in turns help improve the quality of Fedora and software we ship.
Every Ruby programmer could require this gem and it would report the bugs, however, there is no way how to convince everybody, that they should use abrt gem. Therefore, it would make more sense, if the gem is automatically loaded by Ruby itself, when it is available on system. For that, I could patch Ruby, but I think somebody else could benefit from this feature as well, hence I am proposing this patch to upstream.
JFYI, Motohiro Kosaki once proposed to add ABRT support to Ruby , but I think it would be far better if Ruby knows nothing about ABRT by default and we could solve it on distribution level.
Thanks for considering.

- Status changed from Closed to Open
Unfortunately placing something like:
begin require 'abrt' rescue LoadError end
into operating_system.rb does not work, because operating_system is loaded before RubyGems are initialized and the Ruby's require is replaced by RubyGems counterpart.
