Our team uses Test::Unit and numerous inter-dependencies have crept in.  
Our team is also slowly moving to rspec.

Part of resolving the inter-dependencies is:

1) education
2) early detection

I don't want to be the "dependency police" particularly if rspec can do 
the job automatically for everyone on the team.
