It would be nice to do a 'bundle install' to quickly get the environment up and running. Helpful for people wanting to commit feature/bug fixes.

Add to this project? But this isn't a Rails app, so how would adding a Gemfile to a gem do anything?

Several projects are doing this so that it's easier for others to contribute. Take a look at rspec:
or cucumber:

I was having a problem with running the tests after I cloned the repo and found that I didn't have rspec (1.x) installed. If this were listed in a Gemfile then all I would have to do is 'bundle install; bundle exec rake test' and everything should work. It would be nice to have a Gemfile (and rake use bundler) for the project, but this is only a wish. Not a bug.

Thanks for pointing this out, I'll work on adding a Gemfile for managing dependencies on the development end.
