the rpc is to a different (not ruby) piece of software/server (disk quota
system).

DCOM? CORBA?

You could perhaps wrap drb around a local call into the software.

If the disk quota system implements Sun's RPC, you're not going to be
able to do this without diving into either DL (unlikely, because I
don't think that's loadable) or writing a wrapper to the specific RPC
calls in C.

This is mostly because Sun's RPC is crap.
