Is there a reason this couldn't be automated for a ruby release so the release tag is created and the .tar.gz and .gems are uploaded at the same time?

When using the hoe gem the following happen automatically upon running `rake release`:

1) release is tagged in git/svn/etc.
2) release is uploaded to rubyforge.org as a .tar.gz
3) release is uploaded to rubygems.org as a .gem
