A friend of mine pointed out that there's already a gem doing what I need and much more: pessimize.

It's good to know that the same need is shared by other people. 🙂

It's also interesting to understand how the gem achieves its goals.
Instead of relying on Bundler's parsing features, it defines a parser on its own.
Also, by overwriting the Gemfile, it follows a path that I didn't wanted to follow because for me it's more than enough to have a quick reference to update the Gemfile, manually handling corner cases.
