I realize I've been much too vague in my last email, so here is my
* the setup.rb-supporting code would be integrated directly into
dh_ruby.rb, making it easy to share code
* it would be triggered only on a specific option, say --setup-rb
(that must come first of course).

One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness.
The other, to total extinction.
Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
