Agreed. It's tricky. For a normal consumer of Rails that's just fine.
For anything that monkey patches rails because there isn't a logical
extension point for what it wants to do (like rspec_on_rails) it's a
different situation.

I wasn't making a criticism, just an observation. The change did break
backwards compatibility. RSpec can't now support both rails 1.x and
2.x without code that accounts for the different versions.

FWIW,
David
