Thanks, Huw. I can't speak for everyone else and I may be recalling this
incorrectly, but I haven't pushed for anything b/c I thought it was just a
matter of waiting. I never got the Ruby in Steel IDE b/c I've never earned a
dime on any of my meager Ruby work and, with IronRuby on the horizon, I
wanted to get something that would work with IR. I imagine there are others
out there like me who just didn't want to pester. :) However, I can
certainly understand the business implications, and I appreciate you posting
the question on your site. I'm hopeful you'll get a good response!

Best regards,

Ryan Riley
