You may not have ever been talking about easy, but that's pretty much
all I've been talking about. In fact, that's my point: functions not
being first-class objects in ruby makes functional programming in it
harder. This makes it a poor choice if haskell (or any other language
where functional programming is de rigueur) is the goal.
