I'm obviously not as far down the path as ou guys in thinking about
this, but I can already see us having similar issues. Once idea I had
was just to create separate rails environments for features and specs,
thereby letting me run features at the same time as autotest is running.

I also wonder what we can do with in-memory databases, since our
integration tests don't (so far) work on the scale of more than a
handful of records.

Anyone had any luck with either of these tricks?
