Only the install points to a stable branch, the installer itself
installs from several possible branches.
The point is, though, rubygems release rake task could upload such a
file as static content under http://rubygems.rubyforge.org/install-latest.rb
or similar. One could then use the same trick.
With rubygems, you could even pack up a little trick to install from
the rubygems_update package and use a query on the source_index to
find it maybe, or keep a yaml file with a pointer to the current
version, or whatever.
