[Mongrel] Gem versioning and auto installs

Gem drives me daft sometimes.

It gives you this wonderful ability to specify a platform for a gem, but
forgets to provide a command line switch to select the platform. Politely it
asks you, which is all very well when you are installing on one machine
interactively, but no good at all on a cluster of 15 machines from a
Capistrano script.

Is there any way to get gem to automatically select the correct platform for
a particular version of Mongrel?

Failing that can I respectively request slightly different version numbers
for the differing platforms to assist automatic installs.
