The convention that I see emerging is to keep macros, helpers, and any
other spec supporting material in spec/support/macros,
spec/support/matchers, etc. Then you do this in spec/spec_helper.rb:

Dir[File.dirname(__FILE__) + "/support/**/*.rb"].each {|f| require f}

What would folks think if that was included in the generated
spec_helper in spec-rails?
