I suppose the good thing is that they will grow as Rails grows, unless someone bigger and badder comes out of nowhere.

But you have to wonder, how do you monetize a community of coders who are already very competent (compared to the PHP ecosphere)?

I think an "App store" of sorts could be the way to go. Just take % cuts off of other's work, and foster it as it all grows organically. Imagine if WordPress had done that themselves... instead of Envato and the like killin it in what could rightfully have been WP's own backyard.
