ok, I've updated the wiki and the policy draft accordingly.

I've also changed gem2deb to generate 'ruby | ruby-interpreter' by
default, and to respect the declared supported Ruby versions when
rewriting shebangs.

I'm willing to upload a new gem2deb version with those changes, unless
you tell me not to.

I will also send a patch for lintian, so that it checks for 'ruby |
ruby-interpreter' instead of just 'ruby'.
