I know RSpec may not officially be keeping up with edge rails, but
they do a very good job of it regardless.  I use edge everything, so
when something breaks I try to get a patch in as well.

If you want to use rspec entirely without any hassles, it's probably
best not to use edge.  Use the latest rspec, freeze rails to a certain
revision, and develop away.  If you don't mind the occasional problem,
use edge everything, because it'll help us make rspec better.
