[Rubygems-developers] Using own stub code

I encountered a problem during gemifying a DBD (Database Driver).
They are required to be installed into e.g. site_ruby/1.8/DBD/Pg for the
Pg (Postgres) DBD. Maybe, I should build versioning into DBI, so that I
can write:

  DBI.connect("dbi:Pg(0.1.0):db", ...) 

and this would 

  require_gem 'dbd-pg', '0.1.0'

Or could I tell rubygems to install a stub as DBD/Pg/Pg.rb? Inside the
gemspec? That would be much easier.

Thanks in advance.
