+1. I think we should keep as much functionality in Cucumber so other
editors can leverage the functionality.

I'm going to take a stab at this now with the new usage formatter- very
nice! I think the biggest drawback to this will be speed. For example,
doing a dry-run on cucumber's own features takes ~2 seconds. For a
rails project loading up the entire environment I think this would be
too slow to wait for everytime. Any ideas on a caching strategy?
Storing a cached version of the output is easy enough, but knowing when
to expire the cache is somewhat tricky...
