I've been getting more in favour of "example" as time goes on.

Instead of rSpec... hmm... I remember having this discussion at  
Agile'05.  rEx, rExample, exampleR, exR, egR, rEg...

BDD by Example... let's leave that in case Kent gets onboard and  
wants to write a book.

I don't see a big misfit... we write example of the behaviour we want  
to see evidenced.
