[rspec-users] does the rspec_scaffold generator know about :references ?

I checked out the CURRENT release of rspec and rails_spec as outlined on
the rubyforge page.  I am having trouble with models that use the
:references column type.   I get tests with syntax errors after
generating a new class from scratch using ruby script/generate
rspec_scaffold.  The problem seems to be that no default values are
generated for these types in the templates used by the generator.  I
feel that there is a 2/3 chance I am wrong here, and 1/3 that rspec just
doesn't handle this part of rails 2 yet.

1.  I am supposed to edit the spec scaffolding for all models with
associations.
2.  I am doing something else wrong.
3.  Rspec just doesn't support :references yet, and I should maybe
figure out how and write a patch, assuming I continue to use rspec and
fall in love with it like everyone seems to have.

Can anyone tell me which of the above is correct, if any?

Thanks!  (PS:  spec_server is going to save my sanity on my ever so cute
but ever so slow ultraportable)



Here is the line i use to generate the class:

ruby script/generate rspec_scaffold MyBar foo:references

Here is the specific syntax error. You can see where the value should be
is blank.
