[rspec-users] Webrat integration with Rspec and Rake tasks

I am trying to get Webrat integrated with RSpec. I've followed the
steps in the various blog posts about this, but have one sniggling
little issue. It might be a Webrat issue, but I am hoping the RSpec
folks might have already solved it.

I have the stories run from a Rake task  (am hoping for one of these
in the main rspec rake task soon,) ut to run webrat stuff in the
steps, you need to:

rake spec:stories RAILS_ENV=test.

The reason is due to the boot order of rake and plugins (of which
webrat and rspec are ones), webrat/init.rb doesn't attach itself to
ActionController::Integration::Session unless it is on the test
environment. Only setting the RAILS_ENV ahead of the boot sequence
fixes this. But I am wondering if there is another alternative.

Also, has anyone gotten it to run with autotest?

Thanks in advance.
