We have at this point not worked out how unittest/specs are going to
work. At this point we've even disabled the unit test output in the
worker generator for 0.2.1.

There is two approaches: 1) fire up a backgroundrb server and run worker
unittest against that, 2) mock the server side middleman and just test
the logic of the worker class. We'll probably end up with a combination
of this. It is of course up for grabs if someone feel like spending time
on it :)
