Disclaimer: I'm still using 0.7, so I don't know if this is fixed in 0.8.

I've got four gems: copland, copland-lib, copland-remote, and 
copland-webrick. When I do a "require_gem 'copland'", all four of those

the one that gets required. Fortunately, copland-webrick has a 
dependency on copland, so all works out okay, but it wasn't quite what I 

Is this already fixed?
