I'm building a gem that includes an ERB template. To use this
inside Rails, I need the absolute path to this file.
I don't want to use Gem.required_location because I want the gem
version requirements to live in the initial require.
So far, I've come up with
but is there a better way? It seems like Gem::Specification
should have some method to determine the absolute path to a file

Why are you forcing your code to be in a Gem at all? Since
you're being a good Ruby citizen and putting your templates under
lib, why not figure out the paths relative to
__FILE__ in a helper in the same directory
