Although I sympathize with your wish to use a Rails-based tool,
I'm not at all sure that this should be the high-order bit in
your decision-making process.

The term CMS covers a very wide variety of tools.  Each one was
developed (in general) because the author(s) didn't like the way
the others worked.  The chance of your finding a mature, Rails-
based CMS that has the exact approach and feature set you need
isn't particularly high.

So, perhaps you should start by picking one of the leading CMSes
that meets your perceived needs, prototyping with it, and seeing
what features you really use.  Once you have something going, if
you want to transition to (or create) a Rails-based CMS, you'll
have a much better idea of what you're getting into...

FWIW, I currently use a Perl-based wiki (Foswiki), for similar
reasons: it's mature, flexible, actively-supported, etc.
