[Nitro] Nitro/Og spec jump-start

Hi Devs,
Steve Ross has kindly updated his spec_todo script to rspec_todo.rb -
see below.  He asks to be informed of any Nitro/Og special cases.....

Not pure BDDD, but saves a few keys strokes and gives a target to
shoot at (and the only prepare script I'm aware of)

FYI, 'not yet implemented' specs aren't parsed in the current
test-helper scripts so you'll see red '0 failed' summary.

I made an svn project (haven't changed my blog post yet), but you can
check this out at:


Note that the name has changed from spec_todo.rb to rspec_todo.rb. I
also incorporated your suggestion to omit the block for the "it". I
will be changing "describe" to recognize controllers, but this won't
help Nitro/Og. If there are any special cases for those, I'd love to
hear about them.

The code still has the old do/end for the "it" block, but commented
out (I know, sloppy, sloppy).

If you have other suggestions that might make this tool more useful,
please let me know.

Thanks for your interest.
