A.> Ruby! ... Ruby! ... Ruby! ... Ruby!

B.> The best C++ wrapper for Python is the Boost Python Library at

B.1.> They need to take their wrapper system on the road.

B.2.> Ruby is so architecturally similar to Python (read: "derivative") that
a Boost Ruby Library would be easy to derive from BPL. Boost boasts
incredible competency with C++ reflection via templates. This the best path
to a SWIG-style or ActiveX Scripting-style system where everyone's language
agnostic. Without SWIG.
