Usage with Shoulda

When using a test framework that provides setup and teardown hooks
(such as shoulda), you can use VCR.insert_cassette and
VCR.eject_cassette to use a cassette for some tests.

The first argument to VCR.insert_cassette should be the cassette
name; you can follow that with a hash of cassette options.

Note that you must eject every cassette you insert; if you use
VCR.insert_cassette rather than wrapping code in VCR.use_cassette,
then it is your responsibility to ensure it is ejected, even if
errors occur.

Scenarios
Use `VCR.insert_cassette` and `VCR.eject_cassette`
Given
a file named "test/test_helper.rb" with:
require 'test/unit'
require 'shoulda'
require 'vcr_cucumber_helpers'

if ARGV.include?('--with-server')
  start_sinatra_app(:port => 7777) do
    get('/') { "Hello" }
  end
end

require 'vcr'

VCR.config do |c|
  c.stub_with :webmock
  c.cassette_library_dir = 'test/fixtures/vcr_cassettes'
  c.default_cassette_options = { :record => :new_episodes }
end
And
a file named "test/vcr_example_test.rb" with:
require 'test_helper'

class VCRExampleTest < Test::Unit::TestCase
  context 'using a VCR cassette' do
    setup do
      VCR.insert_cassette('shoulda_example')
    end

    should 'make an HTTP request' do
      response = Net::HTTP.get_response('localhost', '/', 7777)
      assert_equal "Hello", response.body
    end

    teardown do
      VCR.eject_cassette
    end
  end
end
And
the directory "test/fixtures/vcr_cassettes" does not exist
When
I run "ruby -Itest test/vcr_example_test.rb -- --with-server"
Then
it should pass with "1 tests, 1 assertions, 0 failures, 0 errors"
And
the file "test/fixtures/vcr_cassettes/shoulda_example.yml" should contain "body: Hello"
When
I run "ruby -Itest test/vcr_example_test.rb"
Then
it should pass with "1 tests, 1 assertions, 0 failures, 0 errors"
