There is nothing in the Ruby licence which prohibits *use* of the 
interpreter for any reason. The Ruby licence specifically covers what can be 
done with the source. In fact, the Ruby licence is very liberal -- if a bit 
vague.

There are better licences than the Python licence, at that.

All that said, I think that working on a better licence is a "not bad" plan. 
Perhaps using the Artistic licence that is approved by the OSI, rather than 
creating "yet another licence."
