Do people put bundler in the Gemfile?

Yes. Bundler is smart enough to omit it from the cache. It does, however, still follow the rules for version. We recommend using ~> 1.0.0 as the version string, because 1.x is supposed to be backwards-compatible with the current Gemfile format.

If you instead use = 1.0.0 and your managed hosting environment updates bundler to something more recent, things will ASPLODE.
