I don't agree.  It allows one to experiment with different ruby version
w/out affecting the dependent software.  It's also very useful in the
production as well, where you often need to run different software backed
by different ruby vm's.  That's exactly why I impelemented this mechanizm
when importing ruby 1.9 (which reminds me that I need to add rubinius
support as an alternative VM as well).
