No benchmarks, just what I've read. I'll try and cook up something
in the way of a benchmark. And you were right, my ruby wasn't
stripped, I just stripped it and the sizes are now:

; ls -l /usr/bin/{lua,ruby,perl,qscheme}
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        70464 Apr 25 12:57 /usr/bin/lua
-rwxr-xr-x    2 root     root       527856 Feb  2  2000 /usr/bin/perl
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       192564 Sep 25 18:55 /usr/bin/qscheme
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root       501384 Sep 25 18:54 /usr/bin/ruby
;

Cool!
