I am not aware that any frontend has been released with Ruby markup enabled.

Modules which are not accessible to the majority of frontends will probably need to remain in beta anyway.

But that aside, Beta is full of modules which are in good shape and just require testing. I have started very slowly and will continue now. Any help is appreciated. Being able to read the language is obviously nice, but I think the same applies to the vast majority of our modules - unreadable by most of us.
