[Ironruby-core] Newbie questions regarding IronRuby in Silverlight...

There are not two copies, one is ruby stdlib, and one is IronRuby's  
own lib. The ruby stdlib contains pieces implemented in ruby, as well  
as C. In IronRuby we ported all the C stuff to C# (that's what  
IronRuby.Libraries.dll is), and redistribute the ruby code. So both  
directories are all part of the standard library.

For Silverlight, I would suggest you only deploy the files that you  
use; the entire stdlib is fairly large.
