What is the status of autoinstalling to ~/.gem if there is no root
permission?  Eric said this might be removed because it cannot be
supported under Ruby 1.9.

If we are going to keep it, we should fix "uninstall" to look here as
well - currently, if a gem gets autoinstalled in ~/.gem, there's no
way to uninstall it without manually specifying GEM_HOME, e.g.:
GEM_HOME=~/.gem/ruby/1.8 gem uninstall json
