In what language is prawn output?
Generally speaking, a View is 2D or 3D, yet our tests must run in 1 dimension.
In HTML, we do that by parsing the elements back into a DOM, and inspecting
this. We don't necessarily do it by rendering a page and looking at it!
So if prawn were PS, can you get a post script parser, parse it, and look for
(Note, too, that .should =~ is only a cheap approximation of parsing...)
