SMIE comes with Emacs since 23.4 and ruby-mode doesn't use SMIE:
I installed a rough first cut at what could become SMIE support, but
since I don't use Ruby, I probably won't do it myself and it looks like
noone's interested to pick up the work.

If they have nothing better to do than watch the lights of the Xmas
tree, it's their choice.  IOW I think the problem is that those users
should get a life.

Why have a special face for the negation char?  What's so special about
this char?
