I think you guys may have reversed the causality here. As I understand it,  
Ruby's popularity is largely =due= to Tim O'Reilly hyping the bejeezus out  
of it. In other words, a publisher decided to push it first, fired up the  
hype machine about the "next big thing" and, well, here we are.

If true, the problem is that it might be harder to convince selfsame  
publisher to pitch a product that might diminish Ruby's lustre.
