Dealing with API changes using Ruby/DL

Can anyone recommend a good method for dealing with shared library
API changes between revisions while using Ruby/DL? (i.e. being able
to support accessing various versions of a given shared lib)

Thanks,

you can use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to choose hwich one to use, mayb it is a
good idea not to change the the Ruby API too, another wrapper should
give you the old behaviour.
