Explanation by analogy would be helpful; "Mogrel fills a role similar to
that of Tomcat for JSP applications" would be a good starting point for

It is a problem with Ruby & Gems specifically that Gems don't integrate
as smoothly as extending Perl with non-packaged CPAN modules does on
major Linux distros.
