Yes, I understand that, however it make things a bit more complicated
when RubyGems is merged into Ruby itself and we need to keep track of
different codebase, because simply for Ruby-Core, 1.8.7 is dead.
Perfection in design is achieved not when there is nothing more to add,
but rather when there is nothing more to take away.
