Hi all,

we're thinking about embedding ruby in our applocation server, and I
have a couple of questions:

- I've been told (totally unverified) that ruby isn't thread-safe, and
  that making it thread-safe would be hard. How much truth is there to
  this?

- Is a separate runtime-only engine (one that can only run precompiled
  scripts) available?

- I could only find ruby-dev and ruby-ext in Japanese. Are there
  similar English-spoken mailinglists?

Thanks,
Emile
