[rspec-users] Content assist for spec files

I'm working on Ruby support for NetBeans, and we're bundling RSpec
(along with JRuby).
One thing I'd really like to fix is having content assist (code
completion / intellisense / code insight, it has many names) work
inside your spec files such that you can not only hit ctrl-space and
see "describe", "before", "it" etc. but also see the documentation
for these methods.
The problem is that when I'm looking at a spec file, there are no
require-statements. Obviously, the methods I see called in the spec
files must be defined by the test runner itself before running the
Can somebody enlighten me as to what that context looks like?
(As an example, in Ruby on Rails "view" files, I treat the file as if
it's extending ActionView::Base, so all the methods on that class
(and included modules and such) all become available as methods you
can call from the view. I was wondering if there was a similar class,
or set of Modules, that I can use to simulate the context for the
code inside the _spec.rb file.)
