Personally, I dont want to become an expert at the range of possible  
testing and mocking tools. I just want a solid framework to get my  
work done, recommended by experts like you. And the less different  
components I need to install and maintain, the better. So I prefer  
the integrated approach we've had in Rspec up to now.
