Has anyone managed to find a nice and easy way of upgrading to Ruby
on Debian stable? I'm not too adverse to installing an extra repository,
and would like to avoid compiling it myself. Stability isn't a *major*
issue; this machine won't be in 'real' production.

There's nothing particularly obvious when searching Google.

I'm doing this so I can use Mongrel.

Here's a quick guide:

Good luck,
