Ok, so after the long Hoe discussion, I have decided to add
optional/developer-time dependencies to ruby-gems.
The first implementation will be purely for developer-dependencies,
not for optional “This will be faster with blah blah blah”
dependencies, for the time being, but I do plan to leave the API
addition open enough so other styles of dependencies can be added.
I would like to know what kind of behaviour for installing the
optional dependencies should be. I believe that when normally
installing a gem, it should not prompt you at all to install or warn
of the optional dependencies, because they are developer dependencies.
Ideas for cmd line flags?
