I still think puppet has issues with 1.9. As far as I am concerned,
that's a show stopper for moving ruby to 1.9 and not having 1.8.
I tried puppet on 1.9 last week with some issues :(
Did you file bugs upstream for that ?
The way I see it, the migration pain is inevitable; we can either go
through it now, lend upstream a hand, and save ourselves a compat stack,
or do it piecemeal with a mess of packages that work on 1.9 and on 1.8
