implicit docstrings

As an RSpec user
I want examples to generate their own names
So that I can reduce duplication between example names and example code

Scenarios
run passing examples
Given
a file named "implicit_docstrings_spec.rb" with:
describe "Examples with no docstrings generate their own:" do

  specify { 3.should be < 5 }

  specify { [1,2,3].should include(2) }

  specify { [1,2,3].should respond_to(:size) }

end
When
I run rspec ./implicit_docstrings_spec.rb -fdoc
Then
the output should contain "should be < 5"
And
the output should contain "should include 2"
And
the output should contain "should respond to #size"
run failing examples
Given
a file named "failing_implicit_docstrings_spec.rb" with:
describe "Failing examples with no descriptions" do

  # description is auto-generated as "should equal(5)" based on the last #should
  it do
    3.should equal(2)
    5.should equal(5)
  end

  it { 3.should be > 5 }

  it { [1,2,3].should include(4) }

  it { [1,2,3].should_not respond_to(:size) }

end
When
I run rspec ./failing_implicit_docstrings_spec.rb -fdoc
Then
the output should contain "should equal 2"
And
the output should contain "should be > 5"
And
the output should contain "should include 4"
And
the output should contain "should not respond to #size"
