Probably true. It's most commonly used with Rails, which is a
server-side framework built on top of Ruby.

True. But in this case we're only talking about the part that really
isn't a server. It's like depending on Java, as opposed to depending
on Tomcat (a server technology built with Java).

But this is all academic. I think most agree with you that we don't
want to introduce other dependencies. But if someone could write this
tool in ActionScript (not sure if that's feasible) then you would
probably have a lot of support on your hands.
