A question which nobody asked, I presume?
I think we heard enough from packaging folks that a new dependency
is unwelcome. Also we heard from no regular/high-value reviewers
that they feel comfortable reviewing additions in Ruby.
So at least for now, the conclusion is to take approach #1, i.e.
somebody who finds "related" a good addition rewrites it in Perl to
promote it out of contrib/ once the design issues settle (of course
it is still a possibility that no such volunteer appears).
