Setting the default spec path

You can just type rspec to run all specs that live in the spec directory.

This is supported by a --default-path option, which is set to spec by
default. If you prefer to keep your specs in a different directory, or assign
an individual file to --default-path, you can do so on the command line or
in a configuration file (.rspec, ~/.rspec, or a custom file).

NOTE: this option is not supported on RSpec.configuration, as it needs to be
set before spec files are loaded.

Scenarios
Run `rspec` with default `default-path` (`spec` directory)
Given
a file named "spec/example_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  it "passes" do
  end
end
When
I run rspec
Then
the output should contain "1 example, 0 failures"
Run `rspec` with customized `default-path`
Given
a file named ".rspec" with:
--default-path behavior
Given
a file named "behavior/example_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.describe "an example" do
  it "passes" do
  end
end
When
I run rspec
Then
the output should contain "1 example, 0 failures"
