Just to set the record straight, though i8ln is not in Ruby core, there
are perfectly workable solutions, both in Ruby and in Rails, like
gettext (for Ruby), globalize plugin (for rails) etc. Yeah, if they can
get one of those many options integrated into core, it would be great.
Other than that, the recommendation to check out Ruby is a good one,
because it is mind-bendingly dynamic, maybe more than Python (seriously,
that wasn't meant to be a flame ;-). If you're coming from Python, Ruby
might not seem all that impressive, but if you're coming from Java (like
me), it's pure poetry.
