A question for the Ruby maintainer: RubyGems?

Hi, Corinna,

As far as I understand, RubyGems is the Ruby equivalent of Perl's CPAN.
Is there a particular reason why it's not part of the ruby package?  Does
the ruby package contain alternative mechanisms for installing standard
Ruby modules from the global repository?  Would you be interested in
including it in the next Ruby releases, or should I look into matching its
packaging structure with "ruby" and proposing it as a separate package?
