Thanks!  Applied and pushed.

RubyGems is a huge barrier to startup performance; so users
should be able to opt-out of using gems.  A painful thing is
just having more gems installed (and even not using them)
slows down startup.

Removing use of sleepy_penguin is also going to help in that
area a small bit, at least (if users uninstall it).

I might rewrite shebangs and load paths via "make install" or
similar, and allow the shebang to use "--disable=gems", too...
(but yeah, also brainstorming some ideas around creating a new
 scripting language because I've been hugely frustrated with
 the incompatibilities/warnings Ruby is introducing for 2.7..)
