Does this...work?

/tmp % gem install paperclip --development -V
GET http://rubygems.org/latest_specs.4.8.gz

Installing gem hoe-2.6.1
ERROR:  Error installing paperclip:
        hoe requires minitest (>= 1.6.0, development)

Seems like paperclip's development dependency hits sqlite3-ruby, which has a
dev dependency on hoe, which has a dev dependency on minitest, which has a
dev dependency on hoe....

Any ideas on what we can do to make this work once again?
