I was poking around in the /usr/lib/ruby/gems directory today and
noticed that many of the installed libs/apps include Rakefiles in them.
Now, I was thinking about this very thing in the distribution of my own
packages. I'm not so sure that's a good idea. It's probably best not to
include the build scripts in the release distribution since it's of no
value there. In fact it could be dangerous even. Running a rake task
from an installation could expect file system locations only the
developer is setup-for.

What do others think about this?
