Hello Eric,

EH> Ruby is fast enough
EH> for everybody here, and its fast enough for basecamphq.com and 
EH> 43things.com.

But since the ruby community is still very very small this is maybe
not a very clever answer.

In the average ruby is a little bit slower then perl or python but
it might not be a problem for most usecases.
