I, for one, am all for configurability.  I say make 'bin' the default, 
but allow it to be configured. That way, if an existing project doesn't 
use a 'bin' directory for its executables, they don't have to modify 
their existing directory structure (possibly with consequences in CVS) 
to take advantage of the executable gem idea.

r.compact.first };puts "\n>#{a.join(%q/ /)}<\n\n"'
