Summary: should_return

Initial Comment:
I'd like to add should_return as an alias for should_equal for lambdas:

lambda { expression }.should_return value

reads more intuitively than

lambda { expression }.should_equal value

Message:
Withdrawing this. Why would you even want to wrap expectations up in a block when you could just set them directly.

Message:
And now it should probably be...

lambda { expression }.should return_value(value)

Or maybe we should just kill the idea?

Message:
Yes. This was initially submitted a while back. So...

lambda { expression }.should_return value

reads more intuitively than

lambda { expression }.should_eql value

or

lambda { expression }.should == value

Message:
I think you mean an alias for should_eql or should ==
