Long ago and far away, in a land of scientist and fuzzy though, I once wrote a database and called it purple.
The project is still hosted on rubyforge (though I'm asking them to remove it too), and that's probably where you picked it up.

Since I see no use for it , don't even agree with it's design anymore and never got it past beta (so it's potentially hamful),
I would like it removed from your list. Thank you.

Otherwise, great service and for more recent stuff I'll be happy to use this.

    I've yanked both versions of for you, if someone in the future wants to claim that namespace they can now. I think there's any huge security flaws (as in sudo rm -rf / type stuff) then we can remove it permanently, but at least now it won't show up in the gem index.
