You should definitely look at reinh's vim-makegreen. It's totally
agnostic and has nothing to do with Ruby. It will work out of the box
with any of the 40ish compiler settings provided by Vim, including
Python/pyunit, Ruby/rubyunit/rspec, PHP, Perl, ... All you need is to
define a compiler file, which is pretty easy.
