There was a problem spec'ing the plugins due to the fact that both
mocha and rspec modify Object, so I really just punted on those. They
do not get tested when we run pre-commit. Now that you've caught me
red-handed on that - the way it could work is to spawn a separate
process. Patches welcome!

Some of those get run w/ the pre_commit in order to test the
CommandLine, but we don't consider them as part of the suite.
