So, this would suggest that the gem (rubygems) would have an executable 
ruby script (gem_server) installed in it.  Where should we look for 
these executable scripts?

gem-version/lib/... (lib files for library)
gem-version/bin/... (executable script files)
                 gem_server.rb -OR- gem_server

Should we have a metadata key that specifies the executable dir? (like 
bin above) or just use bin every time?
