Yeah, I can probably unify the fixtures but leave the expectations in the individual spec files.

I would rather implement them all separately. They all act differently. Status returns a simple string, inspect returns an inspection string, and alive and stop are Boolean. I would leave the shared pattern for the way it is now. You can probably take advantage of sharing methods in the fixtures.

There are four ways to check the status of threads, Thread#status, Thread#inspect, Thread#alive?, and Thread#stop?. Any objection to adding a single shared file which checks the result of all the four APIs? It won't follow the standard pattern of it_behaves_like for aliases since these are all different APIs and not aliases. However, it will help check all of them consistently. I wanted to check  if this idea made sense before pushing in that direction.
