During review of multi_json rubygem , it was discovered that it contains bundled !OkJson library. According to the author of that library, it is intended to by used as copylib:
This library is intended to be "vendored".
It is not a gem; instead, copy okjson.rb
into your project and "require" it directly.
I tried to convince the authors of multi_json, that they should not bundle the library  as well as author of the OkJson library, that he should provide the library in some reasonable way  but unfortunately both request were promptly rejected.
So I am kindly asking for exception for this library as a copylib , since multi_json is one of dependencies of new Ruby on Rails 3.1

Copylib exception for OkJson approved, with a general feeling of distaste from the Fedora Packaging Committee.

Thank you. I share your feelings. Could you please list it in wiki ?
The "okjson" software has reluctantly been granted a bundling exception. Packages which bundle okjson.rb must add: Provides: bundled(okjson), until the bundling issue is resolved (if ever).
