And I'm pretty sure it isn't.

Ruby is a mainstream language. At some point it was #8 in the TIOBE
index, above PHP and Perl. Right now it's #11.

A lot of effort has been put to make Ruby work on all platforms.

This certainly is the way to go.

I'm not sure if Bagas suggested to make USE_ASCIIDOCTOR=YesPlease the
default, but first we would need to make sure the output without xmlto
is desirable, which we don't at the moment.

So, even if we were to consider this, *first* the option to use pure
asciidoctor needs to be in place.

Cheers.
