A note of clarification... the first two times there are without the
patch (obviously), and the first time is with an uncached filesystem
(cold). So you kinda can see worst and best-case performance scanning
500 gems for plugins under JRuby.

I'm guessing there's also potential fixes for that scanning process,
all the way up to caching lists plugins on install (i.e. eliminating
future scans altogether), but this is a good quick fix for
non-command-line rubygems use.
