Initial Comment:
Hello,

I think it would be nice if gem update had a silent mode where it would only print stuff if a gem is installed or something goes wrong and be totally silent otherwise. Furthermore the exit status should be always 0 unless something goes wrong.

The idea is to be able to run gem update from cron and get reports when something is updated or something is wrong. For those paranoid about getting automatic updates, a --dry-run would be useful, not sure if that exists already.
