Announce: Ruby library for scanning and parsing Nmap's XML

Hey everyone!

Before the Summer of Code started, I was working on this Ruby library[1] 
for Nmap.  It was far from complete then, and I got busy with the SoC 
and school immediately afterward.. but I've gotten really far with it 
the past week!

One of the things that currently makes this better than the Perl 
alternatives is that it's a lot more up-to-date.  Mine supports 
Traceroute, NSE scripts and more that the others don't (yet, I suppose).

I don't know if anybody here knows Ruby, but if you do I'd love to get 
your opinion on this.  I'm certainly no expert, as I only started 
learning it earlier this year, and did nothing with it during the SoC.

All development is just taking place in the SVN repo[2].  Just check it 
out (no username/password required) and read the little intro on the 
site (go under Classes at the top and click Nmap::Parser) to get started.

You can make your script in the checked-out SVN directory and the 
"require 'nmapparser'" should pick it up and run it just fine.

This is still considered alpha/beta as I'm the only one who's been 
testing and looking at it.  Which also means this is the best time for 
any suggestions :)

Please let me know what you think!
