I put together some simple version of IronRuby powered "Try Ruby" [1].
This is just night hack, I hope to improve it.

Now, the problem is that anybody can crash it with "def f() f() end",
"f()". I mean StackOverflowException, which is really bad on shared
ASP.NET hosting.

Any idea if IronRuby can prevent stack overflow? I'm volunteering to
contribute an implementation if so.
