There's an RFE for stubbing all instances:

http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?func=detail&group_id=797&aid=6791&atid=3152

It's been there for a while. This is very low priority for me, so if
you're interested in seeing it happen your best bet would be to submit
a patch.

Alternatively, I *think* that mocha supports this, so you could use
mocha with RSpec instead of the rspec mock framework.

Cheers,
David
