SourceInfoCache only gets required if RubyGems hits a source without  
specs.4.8.gz or latest_specs.4.8.gz.  For your tests you'll need to  
require it by hand now.

The new bulk-index-free API is in rubygems/spec_fetcher.rb

Gem::SourceIndex#refresh! raises if the SourceIndex wasn't created  
from a spec dir (::from_installed_gems and ::from_gems_in create a  
SourceIndex from a directory).  I added this to prevent future  
occurrences of the error you found in Gem::Server, but I could change  
it back to pulling from the installation dirs like it did before.
