i'm tired of being confused about this and i'm hoping someone can clear this 
up for me.

when i make a request to apache on a mod_ruby script, i know that the ruby 
interpreter is embedded into apache so that a new instace of ruby does not 
have to be started every time. so then global variables and class definitions 
including class variables persist between connections. right? so if i'm USER1 
and i request a ruby app that creates a global variable or an object instance 
with a defined class variable, then when USER2 requests the same app, will 
the gloabal variable or class variable be set as it was for USER1?

thanks,
