[rspec-users] Date Approximation in Specs

The floating-point expectations allow for an error tolerance. Is
there any similar facility for dates? For example, say I have a
custom class that handles date/time spans and I want to spec it:
context "A DateRange span" do
specify "should know when a week ago is :)" do
d = DateRange.new
The idea of should_be_close_to is to provide a tolerance. My class
only is required to be accurate to the same day, and I want to
express that in terms of "close_to" uncertainty. Is there a great
baked-in way I'm missing?
I have code to do this in Test::Unit that I could port over if need
be but I'd rather not if something better already exists.
