I'm more concerned with adding a parameter or changing the default value of a parameter. My fear is that given enough time and size there will be a fair number of inconsistent mocks or mocks that aren't doing any real testing. It feels a bit like forced exception handling in java.

Does anyone know of any open source ruby apps (preferably rails) that use good BDD so I can see how it's done right rather than ask a bunch of questions?
