The discussion on #553 in Lighthouse got me thinking - would it be useful to enable
vendored gems to be git repos? WIth many gems moving to github, most have a working
copy of the gemspec in the repo.
For instance, a trunk copy of, say, attribute_fu could be dropped into vendor/gems with
git clone git://github.com/giraffesoft/attribute_fu.git vendor/gems/attribute_fu
My first thought was that this might be very useful for gem developers...
It would be straightforward to implement, but does it sound useful?
