Right now the /etc/ part isn't implemented, default sources are built- 
in, active sources are stored in ~/.gemrc and sources are managed via  
`gem sources`.

I think the multiuser windows box is a rarity so the ~/.gemrc should  
be sufficient.

best workers get their tools to do the work for them. -- Syndicate Wars
