I'm happy to see that the ruby nopaste can be revived in EPEL, but I'm
not so keen to see it resurrected elsewhere (what happens when
pastebin.com goes away? another two month wait for an update?).  The
major benefit of the perl implementation is that it is resilient to
these problems - if one site goes down, it automatically tries a
different one.

We've worked to alleviate Jason's concerns: reducing the the size and
number of dependencies pulled in by the perl version - there's still a
fair few that are necessary, but they're all tiny (apart from perl
itself, of course, but pretty much everyone has that already). I don't
really see that as much of a problem.
