We've been using rvm (http://rvm.beginrescueend.com/) and so 
far found it remarkably painless, particularly when you're trying 
to isolate ruby-version specific bugs or if you work regularly with 
different implementations. Having it all in the home folder also means 
less permissions hassles and if it does get borked you can 
just blow it away and start over.
