Personally I'd like it more this way:
gem help # display help
gem list # invoke the "list" command (--list)
gem help list # show the help of the list command
gem install RedCloth-0-0-1
The basic commands like "list", "install" etc. are given without "--",
only special options (like http-proxy) which are themself no commands
are given with "--". This distinguishes commands from options.
But I really haven't thought this out, just a raw idea (inspired from
OpenCM command line).
