Cool!  I just started looking at this.  There is a functional test that is
failing.  Apparently RemoteInstaller#sources no longer exists.  If this
method isn't being used anywhere other than the test, then perhaps the test
should be rewritten.  (Obviously we get the sources from somewhere because
the command line function still works).

I've bump the version to and put a beta-gem on
http://onestepback.org/betagems if people want to run this version
(particularly the proxy stuff).
