Fantastic news!  Thanks Why!  Where did this conversation take  
place?  I haven't been following -core lately,
and since I haven't been committing I didn't get a basecamp account  
set up.

What do the other RubyGems people think about where we should host  
the code?  I'm thinking Ruby's CVS would be good
in some ways and bad in others.  Most notably, I bet we'll still want  
to make independent faster-than-ruby-core releases, and
i"m not sure of the best way to setup such a structure in Ruby's CVS.
