Heck, with a bit of work, someone could do a variation on http:// 
phrogz.net/JS/Classes/syntaxcolor_test.html to get automatic client- 
side ruby syntax highlighting :)

(The downside is that it's client-side and requires JS. The upside is  
that it no pre-processing step is needed - a human can edit the pure  
ruby code inside the block at any time, in any place, and have it  
syntax colored. View source of the page to see the cleanliness.)
