Updated my patch to Ruby Gems to match on "universal-dotnetX.X", where X.X
is the version number.

This will allow for the creation of .NET-specific gems with names like:
- gemname-dotnet
- gemname-dotnet-2.0
- gemname-dotnet-4.0
- gemname-universal-dotnet
- gemname-universal-dotnet-2.0
- gemname-universal-dotnet-4.0

If there are no objections, I'll resubmit to Ruby Gems.
