OK.  So essentially, if an tool which uses the RubyGems API wants to make
gem installation transparent and non-root, it will need to set these ENV
variables before invoking any API call?  And, I assume, manually send the
"hey you need ~/.gem/.../bin on your path" message?

I guess that will work - but I'm still curious to know why this would be
difficult gem_prelude.rb for 1.9.  Do you have links to any threads/IRC
where this was discussed?
