Hi all,

I've been playing around with Ruby for the past couple of months, and I am
extremely impressed with how naturally I can express my ideas with this
language.  Thanks Matz, Dave, Andy and the rest of the contributors.

I certainly agree that "Make suggestions and let Matz decide" is the way to
go.  However, I voted for "Write Ruby-in-Ruby so we can prototype".   I feel
that this would be one of the most constructive ways to make a suggestion.
Definitely more constructive that just talking about it.

Just my 2 cents,
Wilkes
