Well, actually I never stress the fact Ruby or Python are interpreted.
It doesn't matter. Currently the best implementations of them are
interpreters but that can and will change.

New Ruby 1.9 comes with a bytecode VM. JRuby is already mature now and
they also have Ruby compiler (to Java bytecode).

What matters is the languages themselves, not their implementations.
Implementations will get better and better over the time (at least
that's true for Ruby). But languages already allow _you_ to be a more
productive programmer.
