Mozy has just open sourced their implementation of Protocol Buffers
for Ruby. The implementation has been in use internally at Mozy for
over a year. This implementation has put a lot of focus on
serialization/deserialization performance, and completeness.

The ruby protobuf compiler calls out to protoc to do the heavy
lifting, so it's using the same parser as the official compiler. It
looks like now there's a plugin system for protoc itself, so if we
were writing this project today we probably would've just made the
compile-to-ruby functionality a plugin.
