I've been thinking the same but haven't gotten around to it yet.
Specifically, I would like to be able to install only gems I don't
already have (including versions). I plan to put up
http://gems.rubygarden.org at some point and I want to use
http://gems.rubyforge.org as a master repository with which I
synchronize. This functionality would be useful here too.

Cool. Needs a lot of work, but the basics are there. We really need
to rip out its guts and share them with gem_server.cgi. The idea is
that it should be easy to share your gem cache with your friends. So,
for example, if we're at RubyConf and two pepole are talking about a
certain library, the one who has it can say, "just install it off of my
box....gem_server is started."
