Ruby for building and testing C# code

Check out http://www.infoq.com/interviews/IronRuby-John-Lam for an interview with John Lam on IronRuby.

What is interesting (amongst other things in the interview) is the view that you could start using Ruby in testing and building applications that are not necessarily written in Ruby, meaning using RSpec and rake to build and test for instance .NET applications . Because of the integration that IronRuby has with the .NET framework, if you needed to, you could do more .NET specific things in your build or test if you needed to.

Sounds like a nice idea to build a continuous integration solution with this...
