livejournal ruby module update

My LiveJournal Ruby module now syncs comments. I had this mostly working for a while but finished while awake at 5am, jetlagged.

You now need libxml-parser-ruby because REXML is hella slow (like 10 seconds to parse the 400k XML file that LJ sends you -- I must be doing something wrong).

Unfortunately, I forgot to monotone sync my computer before I packed it up and so I don't have my recent changes to Ghosd. Do I let it wait six months (when I get my computer back) or do I just work from what I have?
