I did this 9.5 hours ago. Compared to the python one it is not
vulnerable to File stealing attacks (a client can request a file
../foobar and ~/foobar from the python server and will get it back
AFAIK) and 6 lines long. It is however vulnerable to the DRb style
.instance_eval exploits. I will fix this shortly, but I might have to
use 7 lines then.
