I dont think SSpec depends upon SUnit at all. No you dont need to unload

As far as I am aware SSpec is not widely used, although there are about
3 people who have expressed an interest that I know of and one of the
architects of RSpec has been getting into squeak recently.

Someone was interested in implementing stubs but I have not heard
anything of progress recently.

As far as graphical runners is concerned.... I spent a lot of time
changing SUnit so that it might be compatible with SSpec, so that you
can specify tests/specs based upon method category as sspec does.

The ideas being to eventually be able to run SSpec specs with the
standard TestRunner.
