It's up to Richardto decide, I guess, but I expect there'd be no problem
accepting ruby-mode on the trunk (which will turn into Emacs-23 at some
point in the future), as long as the legal paperwork is done.  I.e. the main
author(s) need to transfer their copyright to the FSF and the people who
submitted non-trivial patches need to sign a copyright-disclaimer.

I doubt it'll be included in Emacs-22.2 (I expect this release to be
bugfix-only), but maybe Emacs-22.3 will be open to a few minor feature
additions such as new packages.
