Just to clarify something, Ruby is not a server side platform. It's a
programming language. You can run it on any computer. To run it, you
need to install the ruby interpreter (and some more stuff if you want
Gems). This probably doesn't really affect your point, but since
you've stated it twice now it's worth clarifying. Perhaps a more
correct statement would be "I have strong reservations about adding
something into the Flex SDK that has a dependency on any other
language or toolset."
