Oh and don't forget the 'else' part:

RSpec.configure do |c|
  c.around do |example|
    if example.metadata.has_key?(:broken)
      pending "is broken since change from 3.0.0.beta4 to 3.0.3" do
        example.call
      end
    else
      example.call
    end
  end
end

Suddenly my test suite was mega fast and I had no failing specs... oops :-)

Cheers
