I didn't notice a CVS change to gem_server, so I guess this yaml.Z

Do you plan to make it a gem_server responsibility. Then it could
regenerate the yaml.Z file when it notices an addition. (Or not?)

Sadly, I don't have time to look into it now, but when I got the
latest CVS, installed, and ran 'gem -Rl' it didn't seem any faster.
Thanks for doing this; it'll be nice to see faster operations.
