[Rubygems-developers] how about a --differentiate-executable-gem-command option

I'd much rather have the default name for the gem command be 'gem' 
and have differentiated gem commands names created when something 
like this option is passed:

   --differentiate-executable-gem-command

There are already many questions from people installing JRuby who 
have ended up in a mess by installing gems for Jruby in the same 
place gems for MRI are installed -- changing the default gem name to 
jgem will just prolong the time it takes for them to realize they've 
screwed up without giving any obvious benefit.
