I actually keep going back and forth on this.  I like having all of my
specs for a given object in the same file... When I'm specing out some
behavior and I realize that I really need to use the DB I like being
able to just declare it inline and not have to cut my spec and paste it
into another file in another dir.  Make sense?  Also, I think reading
the specs that way is less confusing...

On the other hand I can see the organizational benefits of having two
directories.  It may also help enforce the separation of the two kinds
of specs.

So, perhaps I will just use multiple directories since it would be less
trouble down the road...

Thanks Pat and Josh for your thoughts.
