I've been meaning to checkout 'gemplugins' (an offshoot from Mongrel).

More info:

http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/docs/gem_plugin.html
http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/gem_plugin_rdoc/

The advantage of such a system (from what I understand so far) is in
it's ease of distribution (based on gems) and it's auto-loading of
dependencies, and of course the fact that it's already written.

As an aside, I use gems to deploy my own code. I have four gems that I
deploy and two of them contain executables that are installed via the
gems system that execute the code. It's a very simple and effective way
to work, so I'm for anything based on that.
