What's wrong with the ruby that's included with Mac OS X?

A Ruby.framework is available here:


At the very least, if a pre-compiled version of gridflow was included

  As we enjoy great advantages from inventions of others, we should be  
glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and  
this we should do freely and generously.
