A big step closer to having awesome Ruby support in Guix.  The RubyGems admins fixed an issue with their HTTP headers, unblocking my new Ruby build system that can use gems directly from rubygems.org.  Additionally, I wrote an import script, 'guix import gem', to automate most of the packaging process.

It shouldn't be too much more work to write a script that reads in a bundler Gemfile.lock file and translates the whole thing to Guix package recipes.  Then I can finally be free from rvm and bundler hell!
