I ended up building a rake task that would build my player as a gem,  
uninstall the previous version of the gem, then install the new  
version of the gem.

Very simple.

I wasn't able to get the locker room feature working properly (flog  
said it wasn't installed properly even though I could run it on the  
command line, it said I had test failures even though all my tests  
passed). The debug version of the battleship.lll didn't log anything  
helpful, so I wasn't able to figure out what the problem was. Better  
logging of errors would be helpful.

Can't wait for the next tournament!
