FreeRIDE's plugin system, FreeBASE, is going to be rewritten to use
RubyGems.

When we first started FreeRIDE, we had planned to use the original RubyGems,
but it wasn't far enough along, so we had to roll our own format. Now that
we have an emerging packaging standard, we want FreeRIDE to use that.
