Thanks for the offer. Here's a few things off the top of my head.

First of all the ruby implementation isn't a broker, just a client, so 
obviously if you have any need for or interest in a full fledged ruby 
broker there is a lot left to do. ;)

The 0-9 python code actually has a skeletal server framework that allows 
you to easily script various pieces of broker side functionality without 
actually writing a full fledged broker. This is something that I'd like 
to see ported to ruby as well at some point.

There will also be updates necessary for 0-9/0-10, but those are still 
up in the air at the moment.

Another thing that would benefit the code a lot would be to actually use 
it to implement something vaguely resembling a real app to make sure 
that we actually have reasonable API coverage for AMQP functionality.

And finally if none of those things excite you there is always room for 
more test coverage. ;)
