Topic: Silverlight with Ruby? An unholy union?

Hey Guys,

I've written a few silverlight apps thus far primarily using RIA services and the entity framework. We're currently looking at marrying some of our ruby on rails applications possibly through exposed web services and comsuming those services with silverlight. I've found some examples mainly using iron ruby which seems to be shelved for the time being. My question is, has anyone tried this? Is it possible to consume ruby on rails services via silverlight possibly just through consuming a restful service? I really appreciate your thoughts and opinions as we're evaluating options.
