If you want to be able to deploy the ruby interpreter and deploy it like Rebol, just compile it staticly( ok, not an easy task, but it's doable ) against the libs and then, viola, just shove it anywhere in your system, Path it, and use it.

    The "not an easy task part" is what I'm talking about, and how "doable" is it if you have multiple platforms you want to deploy against? That's what nice about REBOL; they've done all that hard work for us.

    If you want to do GUIs, you'd still have to deploy TCL/TK with your Ruby apps as well, correct? (I think I still have 1.6 here)
