I stole some time to fix the problem and also some of the tests that were
failing.  There are still failures in test_format.rb, mostly because we
have hard-coded old-format gem data in the test.  We can probably fix this
pretty easily, but I haven't had a chance yet.

I went ahead and committed Mauricio's changes, so we're now firmly
committed to the new format. :)

Thanks again to Mauricio for the patch.

Chad
