As the article points out, Ruby's opcode structure was inspired by Python's (I had no idea it was so similar, but this makes sense). And a while back Fuzzyman performed what looks to me a successful experiment in implementing Ruby-style anonymous blocks in Python bytecode, which is probably the only Ruby logic that Python doesn't do. Although I'm probably forgetting something as I don't use Ruby much.
