I've hacked a little about it and came up with something we can build

My first idea was to add a new binary package to ruby-defaults called
ruby-common, containing a script called update-ruby-alternatives. The
policy could then specify that all Ruby interpreters must depend on
ruby-common so that update-ruby-alternatives will always be available
when there is any Ruby interpreter installed.

The source:
$ dget http://people.debian.org/~terceiro/ruby-defaults/ruby-defaults_4.9.dsc

I will push to a separate branch on ruby-defaults git repo as soon as I
get the needed permissions on alioth (there is a technical problem with
the groups synchronization there ATM).
