Thanks man. I appreciate it. I owe a lot to Dan North who did JBehave then
RBehave then RSpec Stories which is where the ideas were born. I only
improved the implementation and added some sugar coating. Seems like sugar
coating is what's needed to make things fly hehe.

Plus now there are 51 forks and I have merged in contribs from some 30
people thanks to GitHub. This would never have grown so fast in a
centralised SCM like Subversion.

Until we have a better way to display --verbose - I'd try to sprinkle some
puts statements in the cli.rb class to see what gets loaded when you run via
rake - and try to mimic that from the cucumber command line.
