Looks like I will have a chance to play around with a small fleet of
Gumstix (http://www.gumstix.org/). Does anyone have any experience with
ruby on them? (They have linux 2.6 on flash, Intel XScale processor, and
gcc 3.4 toolchain, so it seems hopeful...)

Duuude. I'm drooling here.

If I had infinite time, I'd be sticking Linux add-ons to my
toaster and coffeemaker.

You don't need infinite time but something easy to port :)

That thing is no ADDON. NetBSD is *driving* the toaster. And oh yeah.
Ruby
should run on it, too :)
