I wouldn't call it gem, you always risk on talking about gem and the
other party misunderstanding you. "gem" itself is quite popular in the
names of programs so i would expect someone already using .gem extension
for some program and that means trouble. i would go with .gisp (or what
ever that suggestion was) it is less likely to get mixed up to something
