A worthy thought, but a slight hassle. We don't even have the ability
to "reinstall" at the moment - i.e. use the gem that's sitting in the
system gems/1.8/cache directory for installation.
If such a feature is implemented, we'd want an interface that was
reasonably clear. I don't like the overloading of --user in the above
