Perhaps I have a skewed perspective (it happens :-), but it seems as if
the ruby-talk mailing list has become rather "calm" in recent months.
While Ruby-core appears to have a bit of activity, much of it seems a
response to the stillness on talk. And alternate Ruby lists seem to
have fallen largely silent, with one expection: Rails. So I wonder, is
Ruby at risk of becoming little more than a subset techonolgy of Rails?
