Good question.  While RubyGems has come a long way, it's still on the
growth curve.  There'll be a 1.0 sometime this year, I predict, but
fundamental things could still change before then, so it's hard to
consider it anything other than alpha.

Naturally, there'll be a beta period when things have stabilised and a 1.0
is imminent.

Mind you, it's a very usable alpha :)
