package the gem normally (but specifying what version of ruby should  
be mandatory) and when it uploads it goes to a versioned depot. pure  
ruby gems go up to a shared depot, binaries go to a versioned one. gem  
fetch can deal with this since it has the spec already. I think this  
should be transparent... NOT as another gem source.
