The Python bundle includes a command "Run Script (Terminal)" that you can use
as a template, but see below.

TextMate does *not* bundle a version of Ruby. It uses the ruby executable
specified in your script, defaulting to the system version.
So to do what you want, just specify the path to your favourite Ruby
implementation in the shebang line.
