well, you probably shouldnt use CSWalternatives, until I finally come
out with the newer version that is NFS friendly. (probably a week).
initial proof-of-concept code is written,but I have to get around to
packaging it. ugh.

Hmm... i was presuming that the "alternatives" call would be in the
CSWruby virtual package,but it would actually go in the individual
"real", versioned ruby packages, I think.
That makes sense to me.
