[Ironruby-core] Cucumber / RSpec Story Runner

To get rspec to work you will need to modify the actual Ironruby
source.  I've raised bugs to get the changes required fixed, however I
did this based on 1.1.4, I think Cucumber will have a whole load more
bugs attached as it has more dependencies.

I know for a fact you won't be able to run Cucumber unmodified due to
existing bugs around gems.  (for example, gem needing .rb at the end
of the file to be able to find it)

However, I haven't had chance to take a closer look.
