Here is an idea:

I understand that RubyInline can be a security risk,
but there are some fun things I can imagine if
someone could send down a rubyinline script to 
a webserver. 

Not only could one compile and run a C application,
but one could run and install a new OS....
Say, for example, find a Window's server and install
Linux or BSD on it..

Now that would surprise a sysadmin when he
comes into the office in the morning and
discovers, "Hey, what's my Linux doing on
my Window's box?"
