Thanks for the clarification. I was led astray by the example from the
RSpec Book where the network dependent code was described*. In that
example the default if filter was overriden using the Proc object and
it returned true or false depending on the network condition. Now I
understand that code could be changed like the following:

~~~
class Network
  def self.available
    true # or false depending on the network condition
  end
end

describe 'some network dependent code' do
  it 'does one', :if => Network.available do # works if the network is
available only
  end

  it 'does two' do
  end
end
~~~
