Well, that's not really what I tried to say :) Ruby is too slow anyway
for parsing. What we can use is Rubinius (one of the alternative ruby
implementations with compiler and virtual machine). The VM is in C,
the parser is still written in C and Rubinius provides us with the
interface to (re)compile code which is really useful because no parser
can handle dynamic language in full
