Is quite interesting how Chris used RUBYLIB and PATH, but the usage of
symlinks is not good for us on Windows.

Unless they change or move to a config file based selector for active
environments, we would be out of luck with it.

For other stuff (like RUBYLIB and PATH), I've pointed Chris to take a
look to Pik on how to alter current processor / shell environment ;-)

One important point is that RIP does not handle native extensions or
anything, is more for libraries. In that front RubyGems is light years
