Ah, I was looking for very similar RSpec-like facilities, but think some of 
them are not really needed (or are just not there). Would the following be 
correct for a simplified first-start at using SSpec (<..?..> is not clear to 
me, yet):

- define any (indirect) subclass of TestCase
- define a testXYZ method (or write class-side #suite methods)
- use sSpec protocols #should, Mock, #shouldReceive, etc.
- run as usual in TestRunner
- run in Refactoring or other Browser by <..?..>

- subclass SpecContext
- <..?..>

Corrections welcome.
