[rspec-devel] [Proposal] change 'spec' to 'rspec'

The convention for gems is that the top level module shares a name
with the gem, but rspec uses 'spec' instead, resulting in things like

require 'rubygems'
gem 'rspec'
require 'spec'

I'd like to propose that we change the 'spec' namespace to 'rspec'.
We'd have to continue to support 'spec' for backwards compatibility
for a long time, but we can do that with a few extra files that just
require other files.
