Incidentally, there's an RFD for comp.lang.ruby going on in news.groups,
for those of you with x-post filters.  Current news.groupie sentiment
(which I agree with) is that there is insufficient English traffic to
warrant creation of c.l.r at this time; the way to handle this is to
push Ruby discussion to comp.lang.misc until it hits more than ten
articles per day.
