I am in the process of writing a simple DSL inside of rspec, which defines some methods that wrap describe/example and augment the metadata, like capybara's "feature/scenario" methods. From the excellent RSpec book, I know how to use Configuration to extend RSpec in a forward-compatible way, but it is unclear to me how to define methods on the very top-level, so I could write specs like this: require 'my_class' describify 'something funky' do; ...; end I looked into how capybara is doing it, and I see that when one includes 'capybara/rspec' that causes a class-level method to be defined in the "global" scope. Is this the preferred way of defining such a method for use in RSpec DSLs, or is there a better way? I have been able to use this method successfully.
