You missed the key phrase: "in Ruby".  What you're describing is a
typical project in Java or C++.  

In Ruby, if your application is so large and complicated that you
can't easily navigate and understand it without a specialized IDE,
you're basically screwed.

Ruby gives you the power to achieve complicated things with a small
amount of very clean source code.  But if you insist on treating it
like C++, all you'll end up with is a mess, and no IDE will save you.

cheers,
