[rspec-users] alias :calling :lambda

Sprinkling my examples with 'lambda' has always seemed like a bit of a
wart to me. I've gotten into the habit of adding 'alias :calling
:lambda' to my spec suites. My examples then look like:

calling { Foo }.should raise_error
calling { Bar }.should_not raise_error

Is there a reason that RSpec core has chosen not to make exception
expectations more sugary?
