RSpec scaffold is not set up produce scaffold for all of the various
mocking libraries. It does so just for what comes with RSpec. I do not
know of a way to simply replace scaffolding w/o providing more
scaffolding (ones for each mocking library) and then adding a flag to
the "script/generate" command to produce scaffolding for
rspec+default, rspec+mocha, rspec+rr, etc.

Also, in addition to this the normal "script/generate rspec" command
could be used to take the same options so it would configure your
spec_helper to run with the appropriate libraries.

I think your idea for scaffolding with different mocking libraries is
a good one. Please open a ticket on lighthouse and let's see if we can
get some more input from others in the community as well as the core
