I'm trying to understand the proper policies for creating a Debian
package. What I don't understand is that pure ruby1.8 libraries can
run on both JRuby and ruby1.8 interchangeably, and yet JRuby cannot be
substituted for ruby1.8, there is no virtual package that packages can
require for either implementation. What is the plan to handle this?
