I'm preparing a new release of RubyGems.  This version includes the work from 
the Seattle code fest and Paul Duncan's gem signing options.  

I've got a question about the gem signing stuff (which works pretty slick 
btw).  Are there any dependencies for the signing code?  I see it requires 
openssl.  Are the openssl libraries /always/ available in every ruby 
installation, or only those that have the openssl libraries available when 
ruby installs?

I just want to make sure we fail gracefully if there are dependencies missing.

There is a release candidate for 0.8.11 at http://onestepback.org/betagems 
(use the --source option).  The release candidate is version

not tried it." -- Donald Knuth (in a memo to Peter van Emde Boas)
