Thanks Matt (and Ben), that's very helpful.

I'm definitely in the "declarative, token for conversation" camp  
then.  So I would write a scenario for success and one for failure  
and let my models (and/or controllers) deal with what failure  
actually means.

Heh, I like this stuff - it's got me enthused about programming in a  
way that haven't been since I first came across Rails.
