[rspec-users] bypass_rescue and its inverse

I've just started using rspec-rails 1.2 and the bypass rescue
declaration is wonderful - by default I tend to write controller which
raise exceptions (in exceptional circumstances), along with before-
filters as guard clauses, so being able to switch off rescue from
(which I properly spec separately) is a real boon.
Such a boon, in fact, that I immediately shoved it into a global
before :each block so that my controller specs would do what I expect
However, that makes my speccing of the rescue_from code a little
trickier. Is there an easy way to do the inverse: to switch the
default Rails behaviour back on, on command?
I guess the other option is to figure out how to declaratively spec
rescue from (which I, and judging by forks of the
rspec_on_rails_matchers plugin, several others figured out for before
Bit unawake yet, may follow up with an answer to my own question when
I've imbibed the caffeine.
