I've updated the code and README to /usr/local/opts/rubies instead of /usr/local/rubies.

Doesn't homebrew use /usr/local/opt/? I know it installs package symlinks into /usr/local/.

Homebrew does use /usr/local/opt/ (and various other directories in /usr/local/), which is the motivation for the addition of /usr/local/... to the search paths; it keeps the rubies out of Userland, without requiring them to be in /opt/.

I'm going to close this. Homebrew has claimed /usr/local/opt as there own, and users probably shouldn't be messing around in there. However, users can manually set RUBIES pointing to specific Ruby installations within /usr/local/opt/.
