On a side note, there may be Ruby start-time improvements next year.

I totally agree, and that's why I've tried to reduce
dependencies on unpackaged gems to reduce overhead for potential
packagers.  I generally avoid software which isn't in distros.

Yes, it would be much work (definitely too much for me).  I know
somebody on the ruby-talk list was interested years ago, but I
forgot what came of it.  I guess we'll have to wait for someone
else to come along.

Fwiw, I also find 99% of marketing annoying and pushy; so there
won't be more of that aside from release announcements on ruby-talk.
