Thank you for the patch.

|Essentially, ruby-mode shows signs of having grown organically over
|time.  In its current state, it's very difficult to add new features or
|fix bugs.  It could use some serious love, and I'm willing to give it
|that love if matz be willing. :-)
|
|Things I'd like to do:
|
|  - Remove unused functions and redundant logic.
|  - Remove Emacs 19 compatibility stuff, including hilit19 support.
|  - Bring code in line with current Emacs conventions, including for
|    comments, documentation strings, local variables, and key bindings.
|  - Add proper parsing of general delimited literals.
|  - Add proper syntax-table modification for quote characters in
|    literals (e.g., preventing an unmatched ' in a here-doc from
|    painting the buffer in `font-lock-string-face').
|
|If I put the work into these things, would my changes be accepted?
|Thanks!

Definitely.  I will love to merge this one and the ones you will
make.
