As a child, Ruby had heard rumors of a promised land.  Where POSIX
compliant binaries could work side by side with pretty graphics.  Ruby
was intrigued.  Ruby had never believed them at first, but now Ruby
went on a quest.  Ruby searched and searched across a mass of
torrents, and found the land known as OS10.4.  Ruby did not understand
the designation.  Yet Ruby knew it was what he had sought.  Ruby
fought his way to be a member of the council, sitting in the House of
/usr/bin.  A highest honor.  Nobody knew of his super-powers.  None of
them had even heard of metacoderite.  Until that sweltering August
day, when Ruby decided it was time to take some charge.  After months
of planning, Ruby gagged and bound Objective-C and stole his runtime,
Ruby grew stronger still, filled with the powers of the Cocoa.  Now,
he had a new mission....
