Piner here.  This is great news!

I've been doing business with them for awhile via Authorize.net and
they've been great.  Refreshing, exactly.

I can contribute too.  The example looks dead simple:

Here's what Dan Manges had to say about Business::OnlinePayment:

"I took a look at Business::OnlinePayment. It looks similar to
ActiveMerchant in Ruby. One problem we had with ActiveMerchant was
that because it has a consistent interface across all payment
gateways, it has to simplify the interface to something that works for
all gateways. This ends up losing some of the richness of our API. So
what we did in Ruby was develop a standalone Braintree library, and
then create an ActiveMerchant wrapper around it to implement the
ActiveMerchant interface."
