I edited the tutorial - and it is in CVS. I think it is a good start,
but what we also need is more on how a biologist should approach Ruby
and BioRuby. I.e. most of the examples are centered around access and 
some minor sequence alteration. What other good examples can we think
of that puts a distance between BioConductor and/or BioPerl, for

Secondly I would like to use some system where examples double as unit 
tests - like BioConductor and Python have. That should make certain
examples are always correct. Any ideas on this?
