> you might wnat to look into something similar. i like to think of the package manager as a wrapper, not an un-networked custom unwrapper/rewrapper and hope everything ends up back in the same box (and usually with competing version numbers and optional modules it doesnt)
the other important reason for hooking into gems, besides maintainer sanity, is to allow the user to mix and match between installation methods. what happens when the user installed mongrel bypassing gems, then installs camping? im pretty sure it installs mongrel again, and then when they get a bug they dont even know which version is being used..
