These packages are self-conflicting between different ruby
versions (e.g. ruby26-bluecloth and ruby25-bluecloth can't be
installed at once) because they install an unprefixed/suffixed
binary to bin/.

This is pretty bad practice, there should be a separate package
for the binary if the ruby library is independentaly useful,
otherwise they shouldn't be versioned.
