Hooks before a scenario but not the background: possible or bad practice

Hi,
I’d like to activate FakeFS for some scenarios, which I tag @fakefs,
however it seems Before(’@fakefs’) runs before the background of the
feature - unfortunately this clobbers Grit, and I can’t
Grit::Repo.new(…) in the backbround.
Is it currently possible to get a hook to run before a scenario, but
not the Background of the feature?

Or am I mistaken in making a distinction between a scenario and the
background of a feature?

Best wishes

Apologies for using the wrong list and that this was due to something
in the Before hook failing - so I won’t resurrect this on the cukes
list.
Things work as expected when driven by a suitable operator :slight_smile:
