This discussion has come up in the past, not just for Ruby. The
consensus seems to be that it's better to keep handling everything by
the arch teams, since there may be other issues besides compilation that
may cause differences on arches. I know of several arch-specific bugs in
interpreted Ruby code myself.

It's also a matter of where to stop. Each new keyword added in the end
is an additional maintenenance burden for that arch. I don't want to
make that decision since I won't be doing the work.
