True, but cucumber is useful for lots of different kinds of projects.
I'm currently using it to build a java webapp, so I don't need much
beyond cucumber, selenium, and selenium-client.

But agreed, if I was in rails-land (sigh) then I'd want webrat and rspec-rails.

p.s. I'm aware webrat works without rails, but when I looked it didn't
seem a big boost for our kind of app.
