Hi all (again)

Sorry for the new thread, but I don't have a copy of my own email in my
inbox to reply to.

Anyway I managed to cobble together a hack to make Guard filter slow
specs by default, but unfilter them if the slow file itself was changed.
I've Gisted the relevant sections of my Guardfile and spec_helper.rb[1].

It's not very elegant, and it will probably be possible to make a much
better version when the "hook" branch[2] of Guard is merged into master.
But in the mean time it's giving me near-instantaneous spec runs for my
whole codebase. Admittedly it's still a small project at the moment, but
at 659 examples/sec on my MBP, it has plenty of room to grow now

Hope that's of some use to somebody!

Ash
