I'd say more than mildly!  And 1.9.0, at least, is explicitly NOT 
production-ready.  ruby19 sounds logical.

I don't know if there's a naming standard on macports, but "-dev" and 
"-devel" package suffixes on both Red Hat- and Debian-based Linux 
distros mean "the include files you'll need to compile against this
package/library".  So I'd recommend against -devel.
