We have our binary plist extension for ruby 1.8 which does not work with 

I think we can switch to https://github.com/ckruse/CFPropertyList and 
then add a compatibility layer for the old plist API.

There might be other issues with the current ruby code we have in bundle 
support, but the specific error above, I am quite sure is about the 
plist extension.

It would be nice to get all of our support code updated to work with 
both 1.8 and 2.0, but it’s also a daunting task because we have lots 
of code from lots of people collected over a decade, some of it should 
probably just be removed…
