I don't want to pollute erl more than necessary. It's not pretty as it is
Also, older erl won't understand PM commands.
A separate gear escript will be is just fine, clean and separate. If we
want could introduce something like "erl --gear <command> <options>" which
would do the same thing as the escript but I'm not a big fan of this idea.
