Interesting. Anybody tried it yet? Or more to the point  has anybody  
Rails on it?

Reading through the post I'm thinking there wouldn't be much of a   
benefit for Rails
apps currently:

"In micro-benchmarks that involve raising exceptions, we are slower  
than Ruby 1.8.6;
but if control flow on your program's critical path involves raising  
exceptions you may want to rethink your design :)"
