I'm not sure how much of Hpricot is affected by the 6.0 changes, but my
feeling is that a compatibility layer isn't worth the effort. The
changes to the operators > % :> :>> and <: could require some minor
refactoring of ragel definitions.

People normally side-step ragel version issues by distributing the files
generated by ragel. Hopefully at some point ragel will be stable enough
that this won't be necessary, but as you can see we're not there yet.
