In RubyGems >1.1.0 (not >= due to current bugs), Is SourceInfoCache
supposed to be the only external programmatic interface for finding
both locally installed and remotely available specs?

In GemInstaller, I'm still using SourceIndex directly.  This is a
holdover because I originally wrote against RubyGems 0.8.11, which
only has SourceIndex (SourceInfoCache did not exist yet).

So, can I supposedly accomplish any local or remote spec query
(including platform-specific queries) using SourceInfoCache?
