That will give your CLI app focus.

2) No idea, the inspector is just html + js, so you should be able to port
it. You can also use the webkit scripting bridge to get Ruby <=> JS and
create a simple editor in MacRuby. (I have a demo somewhere where I show how
to write a HTML 5 game controlled by a bluetooth PS3 controller. It shows
how to easily use the webkit bridge.
