I really dislike bundler.  However, from the Ruby ecosystem point of view,
it's there and it's not going anywhere.  It featured on every rubygem page.
 It certainly conflicts with the bundled library viewpoint Fedora has, but
without it, many many applications built upon Ruby won't make it into
Fedora.  This is especially true since rpm by design cannot have multiple
versions of the same package installed; whereas gem can.

So, I hate  bundler, and I don't think we should allow it.  We should
however, be aware of how that will hinder Fedora as a ruby development and
deployment platform.
