[rspec-users] controller_name with dynamic controllers

I'm writing a controller which should only be inherited from,  
something like the generic crud controller seen here: http:// 

Now, in my spec, I would like to create a controller which inherits  
from the generic CRUDController, without actually creating the  
controller.  This controller is *only* for testing.

How can I do this?  I can't do something like this:

Object.const_set("MyCrudController", Class.new(CRUDController))

because the method "controller_name" will complain of setting the  
constant twice.

Any ideas?
