Sounds like there's two issues here. One is grouping features into
run sets (eg fast-running, slow-running; needs an external service, is
self-contained) the other is running features in a certain mode (eg
against mock-services, against live services; using HTML interface,
using XML interface).
One solution to the first problem could be tagging the features/
Groups: twitter web
Or something. Maybe?
The second problem currently has to be handled as separate Cucumber
rake tasks with different --require options to load different steps.
I don't have any multi-mode features though, so I haven't had to worry
about this yet. I suspect the general problem (given all the
potential dimensions you could create) is currently unspecified and
the general solution is quite hard...
I still think having an authoritative 'rake features' is essential,
