There are at least 3 known alternative implementations that run 
semi-realtime :) So yeah keeping it in rails while there are 
alternatives make you stubborn. Your last arguments were that you don't 
want to manage such infrastructure... that makes much more sense here.

Don't forget our last IRC conversation where you were unable to tell me 
why a specific FCGI client was borking on any request (get/put). While a 
new request just worked. This indicates there are more problems with 
Ruby-on-Rails read/write actions than you are now talking about now.
