[rspec-users] testing against a live environment

I have a series of tests I want to automate, which involve running
shell scripts in a "live" environment (i.e. nothing mocked or
stubbed), and then verifying the state of the system. I thought that,
even though it doesn't fit the classic definition of "testing", RSpec
would still be a handy way to organise the tests. Is it likely to be
useful, or am I going against the grain enough that I'd run into
problems?
