Access running example

In order to take advantage of services that are available
in my examples when I'm writing matchers
As a spec author
I want to call methods on the running example

If the method exists in the context of the example, it gets
called. If not, a NoMethodError is raised on the Matcher itself
(not the example).

Scenarios
call method defined on example from matcher
Given
a file named "example_spec.rb" with:
RSpec::Matchers.define :bar do
  match do |_|
    foo == "foo"
  end
end

describe "something" do
  def foo
    "foo"
  end

  it "does something" do
    "foo".should bar
  end
end
When
I run "rspec ./example_spec.rb"
Then
the output should contain "1 example, 0 failures"
call method _not_ defined on example from matcher
Given
a file named "example_spec.rb" with:
RSpec::Matchers.define :bar do
  match do |_|
    foo == "foo"
  end
end

describe "something" do
  it "does something" do
    "foo".should bar
  end
end
When
I run "rspec ./example_spec.rb"
Then
the output should contain "1 example, 1 failure"
And
the output should contain "undefined local variable"
And
the output should contain "RSpec::Matchers::Matcher"
And
the output should not contain "ExampleGroup"
