Sorry dude; just added it. The format of the gem is irrelevant to the
feature. I'd rather not deal with gem files directly, no matter how
$ gem unpack rake
Unpacked gem: 'rake-0.4.3'
$ gem unpack rake -v '< 0.4'
Unpacked gem: 'rake-0.3.1'
$ gem unpack rak
ERROR: Gem 'rak' not installed.
$ ls -l
drwxr-xr-x+ 6 Gavin Si None 0 Jul 13 22:02 rake-0.3.1
drwxr-xr-x+ 6 Gavin Si None 0 Jul 13 22:02 rake-0.4.3
$ gem help unpack
Usage: gem unpack GEMNAME [options]
-v, --version VERSION Specify version of gem to unpack
-p, --[no-]http-proxy [URL] Use HTTP proxy for remote operations
-h, --help Get help on this command
--config-file FILE Use this config file instead of default
--backtrace Show stack backtrace on errors
GEMNAME Name of the gem to unpack
Unpack an installed gem to the current directory
--version '> 0'
Thoughts? I *really* like it.
