My experience with ruby so far has been more from the side of a
sysadmin. As a developer I have basic knowledge of the language to
understand what's going on, and even to patch code when there is need
for it.
I would dare to say that I have basic knowledge of most of the more
popular languages, except for functional programming which I really
can't get myself to like at all.

I didn't know about optipng, I will check into it, and since there is
already a TU behind pngcrush I will probably leave it out of the list
