Dealing with $LOAD_PATH Properly Jump to Story

Rick Olson recently wrote up his techniques for dealing with LOAD_PATHs, while using real world examples from some Sinatra apps running behind Lighthouse and Tender. Primarily, if you're a library developer (either gems or plugins), please, don't modify the Ruby load path. It's a bad idea. Just like requiring rubygems from your library. Just don't do it.
