in reply to Ruby Before Perl? Nah.

There is no CRAN, and there are no Ruby Monks. That's not to say that Ruby doesn't have it's own module system (rubygems.org), but it's nowhere near as robust as CPAN.
The real turd here is that gems isn't just a package repository, but is required at runtime in your script, and imposes significant overhead. It amazes me that Ruby has adopted it.
