I tried using DeepTest but I never had success with it.  I was able to 
get it to run but on a single machine with two workers (for it's two 
cores) and it ran considerably slower than just running rspec alone.  I 
tried it on a brand new app and saw the same results.  Support was added 
for RSpec but I highly doubt anyone really used it in real life.  I 
would love to hear otherwise though.
