Sure it can. Look at kernel as an example. It depends on how the package

RPM allows to install several versions of package in parallel, however yum cannot handle them and kernel is exceptional case. So if you replace RPM with yum in the paragraph above, then it is correct.


Yes the kernel is a very exceptional case, special handling for a specific list of packages is hard coded into the yum source.

I don't think we'll be able to do the same for a variable (and ever-growing) amount of rubygems.
