This is not my impression. For example, there needs to be an
implementation of Socket. And Mutex. And another "same name" issue,
i.e. thread.rb and thread.so. And who know what.

Not to mention ADO.NET backend to ActiveRecord (like
ActiveRecord-JDBC) and other niceties. By the way, I think a lot of
Ruby and .NET integration can be developed right now, without waiting
for IronRuby or Ruby.NET, by using RubyCLR which has no compatibility
