[Rubygems-developers] rubygems over dialup

Does anyone out there use rubygems over dialup?
Am I correct in my understanding that it wants to download a 12MB index file 
before installing anything?
I tried to install a package, and killed rubygems after 15 minutes because I 
was tired of waiting for it.
Does anyone have any practical suggestions for using rubygems 0.9.4 with a 
dialup connection?
Also, what about a progressbar feature?  Is anyone working on that?
