Fix Rubinius builds hopefully

I'm unsure of how to do this in gemspec. This article[1] only mentions
Gemfiles. Not sure how to restrict a dependency of a gem to a specific
Ruby engine or even if that's a good idea.

However, it seems that if someone is using this tool from CLI, they are
probably using it with an installed MRI. If they are using it as a 
library, they are either on MRI (which doesn't need this dep), an earlier
version of Rubinius (which doesn't need this dep), or will already have
needed to require `rubysl` in their project anyway. So, putting it in the
Gemfile should be acceptable, at least for getting the tests running.

If someone comes across this and finds it to be less than ideal, pull
requests for a better approach are more than welcome.

Ghost

A gem that allows you to create, list, and modify local hostnames with ease in Linux and other Unix-based operating systems (more to come)...

Requirements

Unix-based OS (for now)

Intended Usage

This gem is designed primarily for web developers who need to add and modify hostnames to their system for virtual hosts on their local/remote web server. However, it could be of use to other people who would otherwise modify their /etc/hosts file manually and flush the cache.

Command

$ sudo ghost add mydevsite.local
  [Adding] mydevsite.local -> 127.0.0.1

$ sudo ghost add staging-server.local 67.207.136.164
  [Adding] staging-server.local -> 67.207.136.164

$ ghost list
Listing 2 host(s):
  mydevsite.local      -> 127.0.0.1
  staging-server.local -> 67.207.136.164

$ sudo ghost delete mydevsite.local
  [Deleting] mydevsite.local

$ sudo ghost delete_matching test
  [Deleting] test2.local
  [Deleting] test.local

$ ghost list
Listing 1 host(s):
  staging-server.local -> 67.207.136.164

$ sudo ghost modify staging-server.local 64.233.167.99
  [Modifying] staging-server.local -> 64.233.167.99

$ ghost list
Listing 1 host(s):
  staging-server.local -> 64.233.167.99

$ ghost export > some_file

$ ghost empty
  [Emptying] Done.

$ ghost list
Listing 0 host(s):

$ ghost import some_file
  [Adding] staging-server.local -> 64.233.167.99

$ ghost list
Listing 1 host(s):
  staging-server.local -> 64.233.167.99

With RVM, you need to add rvmsudo before the command:

$ rvmsudo ghost add mydevsite.local
  [Adding] mydevsite.local -> 127.0.0.1

Library

There is also a library that can be used in Ruby scripts. The ghost command is a wrapper for the library. View the source of bin/ghost to see how to use the library.

Installation

gem install ghost

Using sudo may be necessary in some circumstances, depending on your setup (for example, using the stock Ruby that comes on OS X).
