[Rubygems-developers] How best to change defaults for RubyGems in JRuby

I need to modify RubyGems to have slightly different defaults when 
running under JRuby. Where is the best place to do that? Should I modify 
the RubyGems code we ship with, or is there a better way?

For example, because JRuby's main executable is a shell script, there's 
no way to use it in the shebang line of a script. Unfortunately, by 
default, RubyGems installs the exact name of the executable:


So I need to enable the env-shebang option always under JRuby, so these 
scripts install right.
