Ruby's ability to generate DSLs is an order of magnitude better than 
Python's at least.
I only know of the Lisp dialects that get better at DSLs.

Check Rails' validation methods (in the models), or if you don't want to 
dwelve into rails (which I do understand), go check Why's "Dwemthy's 
Array" (http://poignantguide.net/dwemthy/) (note: you may need to read 
Why's Poignant Guide to Ruby first, the creation of the Array itself is 
fairly tough stuff with metaprogramming black magic and all).
