Submission + - Merb to merge with Rails 3

geoffroh writes: "Merb was started two years ago by Ezra Zygmuntowicz as a framework to serve ERb templates from Mongrel, and grew quickly to carve out a niche as an alternative Rails stack. Merbists focused on among other things a small speedy core, being ORM/JavaScript agnostic, and having a rigorous API for extensions. Since the split, both frameworks have expanded but converged on the same ideas and implementation, leading to unnecessary duplication. Today the Rails and Merb teams decided to merge the frameworks by bringing the best ideas from Merb into Rails 3."
