[rspec-users] before method

Having custom before statements might reduce readability a bit - I would
argue that if you have many "it" statements that share a common setup, they
probably deserve a separate context (a different known state).  The shared
context makes it possible to reduce duplication that might otherwise come
from splitting up contexts, and basically does the same thing as custom
before statements would do - only it keeps each context a little more atomic
- IMO
