RHC sometimes requires sudo to install #230

We should implement a wgettable/curlable script that would handle some of the mundane detection logic around download and install of rhc to make it easier for everyone. Being able to detect common Linux/Mac environments and do the right thing would help a lot for users having trouble.

Are you saying that it requires sudo to install just because gem install requires sudo?
I would say that most people by now are used to either having to run sudo gem install, or are running rvm and can just install the gem with no issues. I'm not sure that I view this as a super big concern.

It's just one more roadblock for external folks - a lot of our users are not familiar with ruby so its just about easing them in.

Closing this - will be tracked in public trello boards.
