depends on what part of the re-implementation you mean.
the whole, or the part that implements the languages features,
the core of both ruby2c and rubydium are likely to pretty dang
complex, simply because they do difficult things :)

otoh, the outer parts of the project, the things that users will
most likely want to look at to understand the ruby language from
the implementation, are likely to be much more readable than
there c counterparts.

of course. its damn good c code. it'll be a while till i personally
reach anything as readable as that. thats one limitation of having
only one coder :)
