Interestingly this doesn't quite work, but I used the principle.
The Kernel module is mixed into Object so when you use `shellcommand...
` you can intercept the call on the object itself.
So I was able to:
@my_obj.stub!(:`) ...in the before block
@my_obj.should_receive(:`, "wget...") ...in the test
and use the short form:
`wget... ` ...in the actual method.
Thanks for your help chaps.
