RB-DPR: Rochester-BIT implementation of the Deterministic Parallel Ruby

Deterministic Parallel Ruby (DPR) is a parallel dialect of the Ruby language. RB-DPR implements DPR, together with a runtime determinism checker TARDIS. RB-DPR is built on top of JRuby 1.7.11 source code, with DPR constructs added inside the language virtual machine.
