I was going to be drumming up a patch this weekend to integrate it for your guys' review, per a conversation with Eric and Evan.

OK, excellent. I would really like it (it's a short read) if you could read the path-support diff as well, (I think) it solves some of your previous concerns expressed about GEM_HOME and pals. A preliminary sign-off, if you have time, before I go in neck-deep would really ease my mind.

Integration is mostly there, but I didn't want to proceed on this because this is going to be a much bigger hit than the Gem::FS stuff, which is already going to be pretty large. There is one failing test in this branch; it's been a busy week and I haven't had time to track it down.
