I'd like to generate the following packages for Ruby 2.1

1. ruby-2.1
This would provide binaries (ruby, irb, rake, gem, ...) and a
minimal set of documentation (changelog, readme, news, ...)

2. libruby2
This would only provide the shared library

3. ruby-stdlib
This would provide the /usr/lib64/ruby/2.1.0/ directory tree.

Which use case needs 1+2+3 separated?

Just for smaller maintenance updates.

I think it is not enough value to do it.

Doing it is simple, just more %package and %file tags.

It is more confusing to users.
I think that if you want rid of multiversion there should be one "ruby"
package that contains the latest upstream stable version.

Users won't notice since its handled by dependencies.

P.S. Thanks to write suggestion on mailing list before you start
implementing ;)

Well, I did start implementing the new scheme in home:kwk:ruby to get
some idea about its complexity. It turned out to be pretty simple.
