It's not trivial even for a qpid developer it turns out, there's a
certain lack of documentation for some of them.

I have no idea how to create a gem, python ships with a setup.py which
does the build/installation for you but I'm not aware of a gem-like
thing for it (although I only have a vauge idea about gem, seems
similar to CPAN?)

Will people be happy if I just include the specs/ and <lang>/
directories as is, or would some sort of processing to build the
framing etc be preferable? (if so, I'd need to cut another RC entirely
since it wouldn't be repeatable otherwise)
