Fork Ruby?

As Kroc Camen mentions in his article, Ruby came to the point where the mainline codebase became somewhat bloated. One interesting thing is that he mentions a need to redesign Ruby's syntax, to incorporate multithreading capabilities better. Exactly what C++09 intends to do with regard to multithreading quite soon. Nice, nice, nice! One more reason to learn new C++ :)

And he then says:
Clearly then, even after 50 years of general-purpose computing we still haven't come up with the answer to the final language to describe it all.

Nice touch, especially since that's exactly what I'm looking for :)
