Googling 'RSpec describe scope' didn't yield much, so apologies if
this question has been dealt with.

It seem well known that a ruby class is 'visible' between describes,
and if this is a problem then you should use some counter as prefix or
'class Item_001; ... end'

Is there any work underway, or sheduled release where classes will
exist only in the scope they are defined?

Writing spec's for Og is where this becomes an issue because Og will
grab _all_ manageble objects it can 'see'... all sorts of PITA can

Thanks for all the great work, T/BDD definitely is a brilliant way to
work, and RSpec makes it painless, esp for us amatuers :)
