Hi
We all know: Ruby is not the fastest interpreted language out there. I
think, this isn't the goal, but I also think, Ruby is too slow.
I would suggest, that a time, say two monthes or three, only speed
patches and bugfixes are accepted. So the development could be
concentrated on speed.
I'd like to hear what over users out there and the developers say to this idea.
