Current gem cleanup and uninstall present a dependents list that is confusing, in the below example, given other gems installed, it could and maybe should only display rdoc_osx_dictionary, furthermore several of the other dependents are only development dependencies, which may want to be indicated also.

raggi@mbk: ~ * sudo gem cleanup rdoc
Cleaning up installed gems...
Attempting to uninstall rdoc-2.4.3

You have requested to uninstall the gem:
subload-1.0.3 depends on [rdoc (>= 2.4.3)]
rdoc_osx_dictionary-1.3.0 depends on [rdoc (~> 2.4.3)]
rdoc_osx_dictionary-1.3.1 depends on [rdoc (~> 2.4.3)]
async_sinatra-0.1.5 depends on [rdoc (>= 2.4.1)]
rhodes-1.4.2 depends on [rdoc (>= 2.4.3)]

    This is covered by a ticket in the tracker now, I think. Drop info there if it's not complete:
