Thanks. I think in my case it would be better to name the gem
simply after the name of the C library, like mysql or
sqlite3. Clearly gems are for Ruby, so it doesn't make
a lot of sense to add -ruby or _ruby to
the gem name...
The only thing I don't like is having a github project named
after the original library name, because it can be mistaken for as
the official repository for the C library (consider the
yajl repository which has the C library code). I think
I'll follow your move with sqlite3: the github
repository name will have the -ruby suffix, but the
gem name (in gemspec) will be simply the library name.
