As John said, IronRuby.sln is the one that is correctly transformed to SVN folder layout. Ruby.sln is against our TFS folder layer. Maybe we could rename them to make it more obvious which is which.

Also, I'm wondering what VS version we should target with IronRuby.sln. Are enough people using 2008 to justify upgrading it? Or should we have one for 2005 and one for 2008? Or keep it 2005 for now?
