Bug#822073: vim-addon-manager: Depends on ruby-interpreter but not all ruby-interpreters provide /usr/bin/ruby

Package: vim-addon-manager
Version: 0.5.5
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

vim-addon-manager depends on "ruby | ruby-interpreter" however if this is
fulfilled by installing the "ruby2.3" package, /usr/bin/ruby is not present.

I believe, given the huge number of packages with this dependency, that this is
the correct assumption and the ruby2.3 package is at fault, however I'm not
certain and have filed opposite versions of this bug report against both
packages.  (a link to the other bug will be added once I have it.)

This can, of course, be mitigated by installing the ruby metapackage, however I
had removed it during the ruby 2.2 -> 2.3 transition as there was a time when
both versions were installed but nothing explicitly depended on version 2.2.
