Good. I hope all of that gets mentioned on the Rails site, where it
belongs. Be careful, though, in suggesting that merely having "Ruby" in
a lib name grants it special status.

You are wrong. Asking that the Ruby language site focus on the Ruby
language, and not give special care to this or that library, is not
anti-Rails. I no more want to see Rake or Nitro or Hpricot got special
mention, and that is not because I'm against them, either.
