I agree this isn't exactly production-ready, and honestly it probably never will be. But it might be useful in a dev environment (not production, not test) as a handy wait-is-there-a-Ruby-way-to-do-this tool.

It actually reminds me a lot of similar tools for Smalltalk (see Avdi Grimm's overview of the power of the Pharo Smalltalk IDE) and could be similarly integrated into Ruby IDEs as an autosuggest tool.

Rather than freaking out because it's not production-ready, maybe let's remember this is a toy project and a neat development tool, and it could be quite handy day-to-day even if you shouldn't include it in your production environment.
