The dep actually isn't new, it was added (according to my buddy `git
blame`) 4 months ago in response to this issue because users were
expecting to be able to install gems with cfntools.
You're right that this should have been caught earlier, and a nightly
check would certainly help. Sorry I missed the cutoff getting that build

We're _really_ trying to get interpretted languages _out_ of there, and
of course we're trying to get the size down overall.
I'm not sure when this started -- I wish I'd caught it before the f21
We should have a nightly test check of some sort which alerts when
new packages are pulled in via dependency to the nightly image builds.
