Rails incorrectly imposes version number as last part of gem directory name

Reported by Chris Ochs | March 29th, 2010 @ 07:05 PM | in 2.3.10

Rails requires that gems have a number as the last part of the filename, so many windows gems can't be frozen since the platform string is the last part of the gem name (and directory name)

version_for_dir in VendorGemSourceIndex makes this assumption, as does from_directory_name in GemDependency.

The monkey patch is kind of a pain, as you have to load the patch from two different places in boot.rb.
