Ruby code productivity

Hi,
I would like to know what's your experience with Ruby code productivity. On an average, considering a simple application, what's an average coding productivity of a developer in Function Point/person and/or SLOC/person.

Hi,

I finished a comparison, yesterday.
I have implemented the "payroll" application from "Agile Software Development" in ruby. It took me 10 times less LOC than the author wrote it. Great isn' it?

Here is my post about it:

I don't know about LOC, I haven't done any comparisons. But Ruby on Rails is built for faster development. Active record makes it pretty easy to use a database and validate form data. It also provides scaffolding, which can create a good starting point for developing an app. It also leans on common naming conventions, which means we don't have to write too much configuration code.
