The real problem was  ruby 1.8, something in the middle between 1.9 and the previous release. One year ago JRuby wasn't complain with the 1.9 standard.
The Idea to use the JVM is to reuse other libraries, at that point all the Bio* that can run in it could share the same library, it's not too bad.  Ideally we could develop a common set of libraries but probably is too complex.
There is also another problem, maintaining the current installations, how?
Do you know which are the performances using different JVM ?

Pjotr: do you mean an IO access  in a map/reduce style/way?
