	Seems to work as advertised so far, cool stuff ;) One suggestion,  
folks are pretty standardized on rack and config.ru files these days.  
I'd much rather see unicorn look for a APP_ROOT/config.ru to load as  
its config file rather then the eval that returns a hash style it uses  
now.

	Nice work.
