Except... anyone on this list know Ruby (or Python) well enough to feel
confident in just banging this out? We've got a bunch of "Perl
programmers" hanging out on a list presumably about getting something
actually accomplished but are discussing using a language that none of
us knows probably 1/10th as well as the one that isn't mentioned in this
particular thread part :-) (and likely none of us has used outside of
Rails, a web framework which we aren't developing in). And our main
reason for seemingly dismissing an object system is based on guessing at
theoretical benchmarks that could possibly result in it seeming slow
(read: no one really knows for sure cause no one has tested it), a tool
which is likely to run on pretty beefy hardware simply because of the
memory requirements that camps brings.
