Could you please remove "sinatra-custom_before" entirely from gemcutter/rubygems?

    Hi there, has a great screencast about using gem yank to remove versions from our index.

    Our policy is to only perma-delete gems that really need it, such as gems that may contain passwords, malicious/harmful code, etc. Yanking a gem effectively removes it from being found and will do the trick in 99% percent of situations.

    If there's a more dire reason to remove the gem permanently please let me know.
