Check out this interesting repo I was pointed to a few minutes ago:
https://github.com/jordansissel/rvm-packaging

If we ever feel like braving the packager, this might be an interesting way
of moving forward.

It would be nice if rvm knew that Shoes was a version of Ruby and Shoes
knew about rvm on Linux (either system wide rvm or ~/.rvm). If we feel
like braving the packaging issues.

That is also an interesting idea. Hmm...

$ rvm install GreenShoes4
or

Green shoes isn't a separate runtime environment, though… it runs on top of
regular Ruby. It would more likely be a gem, ne?

Green Shoes *is* a gem. How to create/trigger a download and install of
a particular Ruby version and gemset and all the dependences so the
script that 'require's the 'greenshoes' gem is not yet written, but the
project Steve mentioned has some clues. 

A  month back I wrote a small Red Shoes script, 30 lines of code at the
most. Awesome what you can hack out in Shoes. How can I share that wimpy
script with the world that doesn't care about Ruby/Gem dependencies and
probably doesn't know what the terminal is and probably shouldn't get
near cmd.exe?

In the red shoes of yore (Raisins), I'd just package the script up as an
exe, dmg, or run and when they were downloaded by the user and they
ran/double-clicked the 'binary' it downloaded Shoes (ruby + exts) if
needed. Nobody appears to be fixing those .exe and .dmg failures in
Policeman. Instead I had to say "first you have to Shoes, instructions
are here..." A simple program requires butt load of work just to try
it. 

It's a dead horse I'll whip for the last time on Red Shoes (yay!). There
might be hope for user simplicity with Green Shoes and something like
the rvm uber-lord project Steve pointed to. It's be something else on
OSX and Windows.

FWIW, this is on my list, it's just that I got sick of gdb, and so I'm
taking a small break from Red Shoes. Getting out a 3.1 that fixes some
issues is in the works, though. After finals next week...
