At the very least the set of Ruby dependencies could be made clear.

I asked why I have to go though this - 'this' being installing compiled 
and "-devel" packages from my RPM - to run typo.  Part of the reason I 
asked this was because Typo 4.1.2 needs sqlite3-ruby-1.2.2 when I 
already had sqlite3-ruby-1.2.1 installed.  That is why it required the 
compiler etc.  All my other ruby applications were running fine with 
sqlite3-ruby-1.2.1, and the need to upgrade that was not documented and 
was not made clear in this thread.

I'm still hoping for an explanation of this change and why its not an 
artefact of one of the developers choices in packaging rather than a 
functional necessity.
