I insist: please stop doing that. This unecessarily slows down the Ruby
transitions as uwsgi cannot be just binNMUed to be updated.

There are other 130 packages with Ruby native extensions that work just
fine with a single Ruby package providing the native libraries for the
currently supported Ruby versions in a single binary package.

Ah and it also wastes FTP master time when processing binNEW.
