Does anyone know what the current state of Ruby on Rails versus Ruby 
1.9.x is? Because I remember there were compatibility issues and I'm 
pretty sure there are Archers who use Ruby on Rails (even if only for 
example for development). It would be unfortunate to break it for them, 
even if Ruby itself is better in the version 1.9.x.
