I started playing around with Bundler 1.0.10 today and noticed it's
quite different than previous versions (based on my limited experiences)
and the out-of-the-box experience is pretty good regarding (lack of)
ENV pollution.

Can any more experienced Bundler (and possibly Capistrano) users
comment on the below changes and see if they make sense?

Thanks in advance!
