Caleb's work into this is very interesting, though I'll admit there's 
lots more to be done.

The more I think about it, the more I think that newer JVM languages 
like scala and clojure *are* like compiled Ruby.  They allow for REPL, 
yet are compiled.  The only annoying thing about them is the extra 
startup time (also there in jruby, btw), and the fact that you have to 
add type information, but they may scratch your itch.
