Rubuntu is (almost) born!

So I am working on a custom linux liveCD for all rubyists. This is basically an Ubuntu liveCD that has been pimped out for rails/ruby developers.
This is a call to arms for all of you out there. Send me your weak huddled masses of vimrc's and jedit configs yearning to be free(as in beer). Here is a list of some of what is planned so far:
ruby1.8.4 gems rails switchtower mysql/ruby bindings postgresql/ruby bindings sqlite/ruby bindings kirbybase/ackbar imagemagick/rmagick apache/fcgi/scgi lighttpd/fcgi mongrel subversion svk? darcs? trac phpmyadmin(I know I know but its useful, will run on lighty on an obscure port) vim/setup slick(can use help with this, please send configs and suggestions) emacs/setup slick(can use help with this, please send configs and suggestions) jedit/setup slick(can use help with this, please send configs and suggestions) kate/kdevelop/setup slick(can use help with this, please send configs and suggestions) gedit, scite, freeride? RadRails daemontools daedalus offline ruby and rails docs other random good stuff
OK, lets hear your thoughts. Leave suggestions in the comments about what you would like to see included. And please send me any configs for text editors that are ruby specific or too cool not to include.
And a religious question ;-) What desktop environment. I will include a few lightweight ones for folks who prefer them but only one out of KDE or Gnome is going to make it in. What's it going to be folks?
