A while back I wondered if Rails threatened to subordinate Ruby. (See
ruby-talk:138502). It is interesting to note that for the month of
March '06 ruby-talk has 2329 messages so far, while the Rails list
(rails / lists.rubyonrails.org) has 3945. I don't think that's
significant enough to confirm, but it does lend some weight to the
somewhat troubling idea.
