I would really like to see better support for anonymous functions +  
and what they execute.  I've posted several emails now about spec'ing  
anonymous functions and have gotten no replies.

I think the fixture problem has been the mutability of data while  
doing TDD/BDD.  When you change a field name, do you end up changing  
6 fixture records field names?  What about if you change the data  
that a model should have?  This is the real advantage to generating  
the fixture data in ruby - it allows more rapid BDD.
