ICFP 2007 - Save Endo!

I’m thinking about working on the problem from ICFP
2007http://save-endo.cs.uu.nl/in ruby. I’m sure a lot of
optimization will be necessary to come up with a
solution that runs fast enough to be of any value. But I’m wondering if
even
that’s good enough. That is, I’m wondering if Ruby is even fast enough
to
solve this.

Has anybody tried this, or does anyone know of a ruby solution? I don’t
want
to duplicate it, I just want to know that it’s possible, and maybe get
some
pointers from it.

I worked on it during the problem:

It’s a heavy optimization problem, so Ruby is pretty painfully slow with
it and probably not a great fit.
